Style: Sashimi Slicer
The Suisin Saika was originally a collaboration line between the famous blacksmith master Kenjiro Doi and his son Itsuo Doi. As of 2013, Master Kenjiro Doi has officially retired and has passed on his legacy to his son. The Suisin Saika is now crafted by Itsuo Doi using the same techniques to craft the original Saika line.

The kengata yanagi is forged to look like a Japanese sword. It is used to slice boneless fish fillets into sashimi and toppings for sushi. The graceful, thin blade cuts beautiful slices in one long, drawing stroke.
Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region.

General knife care tips and warnings


  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • This is not stain resistant. It will rust and discolor after cutting acidic ingredients or if one leaves it wet.
  • Improper care will result in chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting. Korin recommends wiping carbon knives with tsubaki oil to keep moisture off the knife.
  • Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.


Caution

Please be cautious when inspecting carbon knives with wet hands after purchase. We ask customers to inspect all knives prior to using, and will not accept returns on damaged goods. In the event you receive a rusted knife, please call customer service within 48 hours, and we will be happy to assist you.
