Sujihikis are an interesting twist on two popular style kitchen knives: the evergreen Western slicer and the classic Japanese yanagiba (but with a double bevel). Sujihikis come in a variety of lengths ranging from 180mm all the way to 300mm and beyond. This 270mm blade is right at the sweet spot: long enough for single action slicing yet compact enough for kitchens with limited space availability.

Kurosaki-san makes this particular knife out of the very popular R2 stainless steel. R2 is a powdered steel that is fully stainless and has great edge retention. This is a good choice for those wishing to avoid the careful maintenance required by high carbon alloy knives. These steels are made with very unusual processes (powder metallurgy), and they have an extremely rich chemical composition resulting in some unique and desirable characteristics for kitchen blades. This particular sujihiki has a really nice profile with grinds that are outstanding and super sharp edges out of the box.

The blade comes with a stunning hammered, or tsuchime, finish. The striking looks of the blade are complemented by a lovely traditional octagonal rosewood wa handle.

In keeping with his style, Kurosaki crafts his knives with a keen eye towards ingredient separation and non-stick properties. The knives will be able to achieve absurd levels of sharpness and acute blade angles, exhibit superior edge retention and perform incredibly well through most ingredients.

      Nice knife
    Posted By: Mike

    I won't use this often but when I do the family is around so I wanted a stunner. The blade fits the bill but I feel that anything over $250 should have a finished handle. This one is not finished where the tang enters and the gap is filled with board wax and its sloppy work. I don't mind this on my <$100 knives. In the future a properly finished handle will be a requirement on all the knives I purchase! I'll probably be letting this one go because of it.

    This is the first Sujihiki and from Yu Kurosaki, I enjoyed every bit of it especially its hammered tsuchime finish. One of the coolest knife I own.
