Sujihiki (Slicer, Slicing knife, Filet knife)
The blade is elongated and thinner than Gyutoh (butcher knife for meat) and used primarily to cut large piece of meat. This type can easily cut away meat with the tendons still intact when slicing the beef shank hung by a S hook. The Sujihiki knife’s true purpose extends further to dividing the meat through the tendons into blocks of few kilograms. In restaurants, the more expensive the ingredient becomes, such as file mignon or sirloins, tendons that are hard to bite through are carved away in preparation. Since the blade is thin, it can cleanly remove the tendons without wasting any meat, preventing loss, which makes this knife an indispensable knife to professional chefs handling beef products.
What a beautiful knife. The hammered pattern on the blade is not only beautiful, it helps release food when chopping. The knife is very well crafted. It’s extremely sharp and well balanced. Craftsmanship, features and eye catching good looks make this knife a great buy for the price point.
Amazing looking knife (true to the picture), you will not be disappointed! Very good quality build and definitely up to the task of being used as your main chef's knife! Shipped and arrived very quickly as well.
Je suis ravi d'avoir acheté ce couteau, il est très bien et rend la découpe des légumes plus simple et précise. Cela dit, le couteau vient avec une étiquette dans la boîte qui mentionne le prix est de 7500 YEN au Japon et ici il vendu deux fois plus cher voire plus quand il n'est pas en spécial, c'est un peu ordinaire.
I’m always a little sceptical when ordering from a new site online, but they were very friendly and helpful, even shipped out the next day!! It was for a gift, but so happy with it! Thank you kindly :)
