Enjin SRK8 Sujihiki 270mm. Our latest blacksmith find, Kyohei Shindo, works and resides in Tosa Japan. He's a young blacksmith with a bright future ahead of him.

The first knives in this new line are made with SRK8 steel which is an alloy that boasts some similarities to Hitachi Shirogami #2. In the case of SRK8, chrome and nickel are added for extra toughness and resilience. The steel is heat-treated to HRC 63+. It should therefore hold a good edge and be easy to sharpen.

These are really good looking knives featuring a well-done kurouchi finish on the upper blade road that fades to a nice matte sand-blasted lower portion. The core SRK8 steel shows really well against this backdrop. A great looking burnt oak wood handle with an urushi finish makes a perfect match for the blade.

      Tall Laser Slicer, Great Value, May 6, 2022
    Posted By: Cory Phillips

    Kyohei Shindo is a young up-and-coming blacksmith from Kochi with a bright future ahead of him. This sujihiki is a great performer, nice and thin behind the edge. The fit and finish is great. The upgraded handle is a nice touch. Really spectacular value on this blade. The height is a little taller than most Sujihiki at 42-43mm, so it can be used on a cutting board if desired. I decided to make mine into a pure slicer and lowered the edge angle to 5 per side, making it a real laser beam. The SRK8 steel is basically Shirogami#2 with a tiny amount of chromium, likely to help with forging. All in all, amazing value and an indispensable blade in my lineup.
