One of the most essential knives a chef and a cook can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki knife. 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. The Sujihiki Kiritsuke has sword tip that helps balance the weight of the knife and is recommended for chefs who are interested in a Sujihiki but have a smaller working space. Even the simplest of 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. Do not allow the blade to touch bone or frozen food. 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.
