The Kurosaki Laser AS Sujihiki 270mm is made using top shelf Aogami Super steel, one of the best carbon steels used for kitchen knives. The hagane, or central core, is clad with a stainless steel jigane for added strength and corrosion protection. It is a san-mai construction which means that the spine still shows the inner core steel. The Aogami Super steel is hardened to 63 HRC.
This great looking sujihiki is an easy to care for knife with great fit and finish and a super sharp cutting edge. The edge is acute and has high wear resistance for long lasting sharpness.
The Kurosaki Laser AS Sujihiki comes with a nicely finished traditional octagonal handle. It has a 50/50 grind so it works equally well for right- or left-handed users. The lovely sand blasted primary bevel is enhanced by the addition of some fine chiseled kanji script.
Sujihiki knives are designed for slicing and carving jobs. Whether raw or cooked, proteins will fall prey to this narrow and thin blade. The 270mm length works well for most people. It does require a fairly open space and large cutting board to extract its full potential. Slices should be performed in a single pull action to minimize damage to the product.
Want to prepare see-through carpaccio? Cut perfect sushi slices? Then this knife should be on your short list for consideration!

This was my first AS knife experience and I gotta say its a game changer. stays razor sharp looks super cool and is a breeze to sharpen.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
