The HD line from Konosuke has the same dimensions as the White #2 line, but is made from proprietary semi-stainless steel to provide that extra protection from discoloration. Care does need to be taken to prevent rusting, but these knives take on a great patina which will also help to curb discoloration. This 240mm Sujihiki is a good length for a slicer. Perfect for rib roasts or slicing your favorite fish for sushi. Heat-treated to an HRC of 61, these blades are attached to an octagonal Ho wood handle with a black Buffalo horn ferrule. As with all of our Konosuke knives, this comes with the option of a Saya.
First rate knife. Slices like a dream. I have a few Konosukes and they all came with super sharp factory edges. Nice and light,good balance and very comfortable Japanese handle. Excellent value for money. As always,great and speedy service from CKTG.
