The Kohetsu Aogami Super Sujihiki
270mm is one of our favorite sujihikis on the site. It is made with top shelf Aogami Super steel which is great carbon steel for kitchen knives. The central core is clad with stainless steel for added strength and protection. The result is an easy to care for knife with nice fit and finish and a great cutting edge that is both acute and has high wear resistance for long lasting sharpness.
Sujihikis are perfect for all slicing and carving jobs. Whether raw or cooked, proteins will fall prey to this narrow and thin blade. Want to make see-through carpaccio? This is your knife!
The Kohetsu AS sujihiki
is both elegant and efficient. The knife comes with a fine ho wood octagonal handle and 60/50 grind, and it works equally well with right- or left-handed users.
Sujihikis can run into the thousands of dollars. This knife proves that much of these hyper-blade’s attributes can be realized with a sensible outlook toward blade construction and design.
Please note, the knife sharpener intentionally thins the edges of these knives to make them perform better, especially on the tip area. Often times you will see a hazy/cloudy scratch pattern as a result. This is not a defect.
A great deal of knife for a great deal!
