The Togiharu Hollow Ground line is created out of 8A steel and a composite wood handle. The dimples on the surface of the knife function as air pockets to help prevent ingredients from sticking to the knife, making this line ideal for busy cooks. In comparison to the Togiharu Inox, this line’s blade is slightly thicker and heavier which makes it better for rougher work.
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.
