Masanobu VG-10 Sujihiki
Item #: HMB-VGSU
Size: 10.5" (27cm)
Style: Slicer
Masanobu knives are made out of a VG-10 cobalt stain resistant steel blade and a pressed wood handle with a metal bolster to provide exceptionally balanced weight. This line was developed by combining traditional Japanese knife aesthetics with state of the art computerized laser processing technology. The VG-10 cobalt blade is one of the highest quality steels used in knife production, and has an excellent edge retention. Masanobu knives are available in the standard and damascus styles. Masanobu Damascus knives are laser printed to have a damascus look and without sacrificing sharpness. Left-handed users must have Masanobu Damascus line knives converted for left-handed use.

The Sujihiki is a slicing knife intended for slicing boneless fish filets. It can also be used to slice boneless roasts, hams and poultry breasts. The short height of the blade creates less friction when slicing and the blade draws through fish and meat effortlessly using the entire length of the blade. The sujihiki is the Western-style equivalent the traditional yanagi knife.

For those who would like the convenience of the sujihiki, but blade of a yanagi for fish only, please try Korin's Blade Alteration Services. We will change your sujihiki knives to fit your needs in the kitchen.
