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 300mm Sujihiki is the perfect 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 Ebony wood handle with a blonde Buffalo horn ferrule. As with all of our Konosuke knives, this comes with the option of a Saya.
This sujihiki is the perfect addition to any kit that is in need of a nice slicer or carving knife. It is very lightweight (virtually weighs as much as a feather) compared to other traditionally lightweight Japanese knives. I do not regret buying this knife. It is beautiful in every way. This knife makes slicing filets of fish effortless,I had to get around 500 4 oz. portions from 140 lbs of salmon. This knife can put it away. Definitely recommend this knife to those who can get their hands on it.
