Blade & Handle
Seki Kanetsugu applies their expertise in crafting traditional knives to produce knives that are appealing to non-Japanese cooks. The sujihiki is the Japanese version of the classic Western slicing knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. One of the reasons why Kanetsugu's brand name is not more widespread is because they are the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of several famous German and Japanese knife brands.
The long blade of this knife is ideal for carving cooked meats and slicing terrines and pates. It can also be used instead of a yanagi to slice raw fish.
