Jazz up your Sunday roast carving with this bad boy.

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. The steel has then been hardened to 62-63 rockwell and wrapped in stainless steel to further ease maintenance.

FINISH: This knife has both kurouchi and tsuchime finish. The kurouchi is a black scale left from the forge which inhibited rust, while tsuchime refers to the hand-hammered finish that helps with food release.

HANDLE: D-shaped Macassar Ebony handles. These are designed for right handers but in my opinion a lefty should be ok. 

LENGTH: 240mm in length.

MAKER: Ohishi, Niigata City, Japan

BEST FOR: A head turning range of knives in an easy to look after package.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "Cor blimey this range of knives is beautiful. I want all of them."
