The sujihiki is fundamentally a slicing knife that has a long narrow blade normally running between 270mm and 330mm. Itís purpose is to smoothly slice through meat or vegetables while preserving the integrity of each ingredient's freshness.The Sujihiki slicer can carve and process large roasts and other meats and fish. It is commonly used for cutting sushi and thinly slicing other ingredients such as hams or smoked salmon. The sujihiki is regarded as a Western-style equivalent of the traditional yanagiba knife.

The Richmond Artifex Sujihiki is 270mm long, so it can thinly slice large cuts of protein using one single stroke. The very thin blade of the Artifex Sujihiki is constructed from a single piece of AEB-L stainless steel. It is a fine grained alloy which is easy to sharpen and retains a nice edge. The hardness is about 61 HRC.

The knife comes with a black linen micarta handle in a western shape. This material is bomb proof and will give you years of worry free use. Also, there is no bolster on the blade so this combination is an interesting cross between western and Japanese styles. An interesting and relevant choice for this hybrid style blade. We manufacture this knife with our partners Lamson and Goodnow in the USA.

    Brilliant slicer,it’s my new go-to. Really light and shave sharp out of box!

    I work in a kitchen professionally,most of my hours are spent fabricating food. The Sujihiki is my go to knife to break down whole fish. From Salmon,halibut to Striped Bass. It’s thin and narrow allowing me to navigate bones and skin. This knife has a slight flex where I need a little give. Very durable,versatile and sharp. I recommend for anyone and everyone.

    I am very impressed. It’s pretty sharp out of the box and it has features that you generally find on knives with much higher price points such as a rounded spine. It takes and holds a good edge and manages to be just flexy enough. The length is nice for cleaning salmon and slicing ribeyes but I find that it cleans tenderloins as well as anything else I have ever used. All thanks to Mark for making this available.

    I received the Richmond Suji I used it over the weekend as a stand-in Yanagiba to break 3,40-lb Pacific Yellowtail into Sashimi style slices for an event. I did the breaking cuts with a different knife,but all the slicing was done with the Suji. Needless to say,that was A LOT of slices. The knife,with the supplied edge works very,very well. I am impressed. I didnít touch it with the Idahone (even though it needed it toward the end a bit). I cut more slices of fish for that prep than most sushi chefs cut in two services. Nice piece. If anybody has questions,give them my e-mail address. Also,the knife is an incredible value. I hope you get more steel so you can produce more.

    I ordered this knife with the optional sharpening. I used the knife out of the box on a very heavy (3 50 lb fish) prep session. All I can say is Wow! There is not a better value than this Suji. You will not be disappointed,in fact,you may want to send in more money!

    Iím very pleased with my recent purchase of the Richmond Artifex sujihiki. I love the flexibility of use it gives me. Great steel with a very good factory edge. A great value as well.

    Couldn’t be happier with the blade.

    Won’t opt for the sharpening service again though.

    I wasn’t sure I would like this knife when I got it but I needed an affordable slicer so I bought this one. It does a great job on slicing anything I need and I use it to fillet fish and it works great. I needed a little sharpening out of the box and the steel has stained a bit from use which I wasn’t expecting but its nothing for me to worry about.
