Sujihiki knife, aogami core with stainless steel cladding and nashiji finish - Ohishi
This product is currently sold out.
Jazz up your Sunday roast carving with this badboy.
SHAPE: Slicer or sujihiki. A Japanese carving knife suitable for thin slicing.
STEEL: Aogami (blue paper) 2 steel. This is very similar to white paper steel but with tungsten and chromium added to it which helps with edge retention and slows down rusting. This has then been clad with stainless steel meaning only the edge is susceptible to rust.
FINISH: Nashiji or pear skin finish. This matt and mottled finish helps with food release and looks very rustic.
HANDLE: D shaped Macassar Ebony handles. These are designed for right handers but in my opinion a lefty should be ok as the handle.
LENGTH: 270mm in length.
MAKER: Ohishi, Niigata City, Japan
BEST FOR: Showing off.
