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.
I got this for my boyfriend’s dad as a gift. I had to open it and see the item first. It was packaged well, and they even wrapped up the box of the knife as well with a cute bow! The package even had a vanilla scent to it which I enjoyed. Opening up the box, inside it was packaged neatly and seeing the knife, it was even more stunning than the pictures. From the handle to the actual blade it self - gorgeous. Definitely an unforgettable shopping experience. If I ever need something of this sort again, would 100% purchase from here again.
