Our Yoshihiro SLD Stainless Clad Knives are clad in 2 layers of stainless steel that provides durability and protection without sacrificing its sharp cutting edge. High Performance SLD is among the new generation of steels being engineered in Japan that endeavor to surpass the capabilities of existing metals. Its main features is that it is highly wear resistant with a hardness level that rivals carbon steel with a high level of stain resistance. This combination of cutting-edge metallurgy results in a knife with excellent sharpness, long edge retention, and stainless durability.
The blade comes complimented with a traditional Japanese handle that is made of ebony wood equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a "Saya," which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan. The octagonal shape of the handle allows for comfortable use regardless if the user is left or right handed.
One of the most essential knives a chef and a cook can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki-Kiritsuke knife. Using the best ingredients requires the right tools. From slicing filet 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. The Sujihiki-Kiritsuke slicer is perfect for fabricating large roasts to thinly slicing cucumbers or smoked salmon. Yoshihiro Sujihiki-Kiritsuke slicing knives are perfect for table side carving during holidays and special occasions.
Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chef’s knife to make every meal into something special.
