The sujihiki is designed for slicing boneless proteins. The short blade height reduces friction when cutting and the blade draws through fish and meat effortlessly. The blade is made relatively longer (some over 330mm) than other knife types so the slicing action can be achieved in one stroke. The sujihiki can be thought of as a Western style equivalent of the traditional yanagi knife which features a one sided grind as opposed to the double sided suji.

Takeda knives are made entirely by hand and as such are all a bit different. This extremely talented blacksmith uses no templates or forms...relying on his trained eyes to give each knife the grind, edge and overall profile that make this brand so highly regarded in the knife world. This suji is a perfect example of his ultra thin edge geometry and his ability to forge and temper the difficult steel into a blade that has both a hardness to the edge while offering the owner a tool that is relatively easy to sharpen and maintain.

But for all his expertise with geometry and metallurgy, itís the soul of his knives that make them so sought after and collected. Just try any of his wonderful knives and you will understand why so many enthusiasts insist that you must own at least one Takeda blade to be considered a true knife aficionado.

Please note that all measurements are approximations! Takeda-san and his helpers make each of these knives by hand, without a template. As a result, every knife is unique and the stats will vary.

  • Edge Length: 270mm

    Overall the Yanagiba is excellent as all the Takeda knives I have had the opportunity to use. I had some concern ordering a 275 mm knive (acturally measures 279 mm). I quickly was completly at home with the 279 mm - partly due to the lightness - 156 g - my similar 229 mm Shun weighs in at 198 g. With its typical Takeda sharpness it is breeze and joy to use.

    I have many knives and the Takeda are special. Excellent knive and excellent service!

    I po polsku: Wspanialy, lekki i ostry noz. Warto miec choc jeden ze stali weglowej, jak kupicie, zrozumiecie, dlaczego. Mam kilkanascie roznych, ale ten zawsze chetnie biore do reki. Dziekuje tez za wspaniala obsluge. Przesylka do Polski dotarla szybko i bezproblemowo, mozna tez liczyc na fochowa porade i pomoc w wyborze. Jeszcze raz dziekuje i polecam sklep wszystkim!!!
