This beautiful Kengata Sujihiki knife (Japanese Slicer) is made by a young and talented craftsman (blacksmith) from the Saitama Prefecture, Norifumi Yoshizawa. 245mm hand-forged, three-layer (san mai) blade, made from Takefu Special Steel Company Shiro2 carbon steel (not the same but similar to Shirogami#2) as the central core, sandwiched between two layers of softer stainless steel.  Japanese traditional shape handle made from Rosewood. Yoshizawa developed his skills in the Tosa region under the patronage of the famous Mr. Yoshihiko Akitomo (Rad Orca cutlery owner in the third generation). Tosa uchihamono (Tosa cutlery) is distinctive for free-forging in which knives shapes are formed by the precise hammering and flattening of hot metal. All Tosa knives forging and finishing processes are made by only one man (so Tosa artisans spend many years developing their skills). Yoshizawa believes knives are valuable only when they are used as a tool for daily life. That is why he is working hard to create knives that not only look beautiful but also have the functional beauty of practical knives that can be re-sharpened and used for an extended period. The perfect blade shape, superb balance, and Takefu Shiro2 carbon steel will guarantee excellent cutting ability and sharpness but low rust resistance. To prevent corrosion, please wipe the blade, particularly the core steel not covered by the stainless cladding, to dry after every use. Yoshizawa Kengata Sujihiki knife is a perfect choice for home "Everyday" cooking and is highly recommended for professionals. Each knife is individually packed in a premium Japanese authentic gift box with traditional patterns.

This knife is razor-sharp, yet it's also nicely balanced and comfortable in hand. It is, without a doubt my favorite knife, and I go for it in nearly every scenario.
