One of the most essential knives a chef and a cook can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki knife. The sujihiki is a slicing knife with a long narrow blade that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredients freshness.The Sujihiki slicer can carve and fabricate large roasts and other meats and fish, and can be used for thinly slicing other ingredients such as cucumbers or smoked salmon. The sujihiki is the Western-style equivalent of the traditional yanagi knife. Yoshihiro Sujihiki slicing knives are perfect for table side carving during holidays and special occasions. Using the best ingredients requires the right tools. From slicing filets of fish fresh from the fish monger to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
