Sujihikis are slicing knives we tend to sell to people who do a lot of carving, as well as to sushi line cooks who need a thin, efficient cutting blade. The Anryu Kurouchi Damascus Sujihiki is excellent at both tasks. The blade length of this knife is perfect for almost any situation whether it be in a large or smaller environment.
The knife is made from White #2 steel that has been hardened to about 61-62 Rockwell. Shirogami 2 (White #2) is a popular alloy in the kitchen knife world. It is favored for its great edge retention and ease of sharpening characteristics. It is particularly liked by sushi chefs. The blade is constructed san-mai style with an outer cladding of a soft carbon steel. The iron is forged into a multi-layer damascus. This cladding is left with a blacksmith or kurouchi finish. We really like the way it transforms into the suminagashi part of the blade road. This is a lovely looker with performance to match.
An oval handle made from rosewood and black pakka wood is perfectly matched to the blade. We think this is one of the nicest sujihikis we carry, offering wonderful looks and performance at a very reasonable price.

Super happy with this knife. So light for its length, maintains a nice edge with very little effort. Definitely becoming my all day knife.
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.
