Masamoto Knives has a history of producing quality cutlery for almost 170 years and is the leading sushi chef knife maker name in Japan. If you are a professional sushi chef, odds are you own a Masamoto knife.
The Sujihiki is a westernized Yanagiba. It features the same long slender blade so essential to slicing proteins in a quick efficient one stroke manner. But unlike its more traditional cousin, the Suji is ground on both sides of the blade.
This makes it easier to handle and sharpen for more people, while sacrificing only a slight performance advantage to the yanagi.
The knife featured here is another in the VG line of High Carbon stainless steel cutlery utilizing Masamoto’s own Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium alloy
Weight: 7.0 ounces
