Yoshihiro Tsuchime Finish VG10 17-layer Damascus Steel Sujihiki



Crafted by Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, the knife combines Sakai's 600 years of forging tradition with the ancient art of Damascus folding. It features a 17-layer folded Damascus stainless steel, with a corrosion-resistant VG10 core.

The blade is manually hammered to create a beautiful Tsuchime pattern, which aids in food release during cutting. The blade edge is polished with a bright finish, showcasing the exquisite Damascus folding pattern.

The primary function of a Sujihiki knife is to trim, cut meat, and slice it along the grain, while removing excess fat and connective tissues.
Since the tendons in meat are not in a straight line, the Sujihiki has a relatively narrow blade width, allowing users to have precise control over the blade and smoothly cut along the tendons.

The thin blade is also suitable for slicing meat into thin pieces. Depending on the length, professional chefs can use it as a versatile tool and employ the Sujihiki for processing sashimi dishes.

Handle: Mahogany wood Western-style handle

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
