Sujihiki translates literally to 'Flesh Slicer' and it does exactly what the name suggests. It's perfect for carving and slicing roasts, turkey, raw meats, fish, and all other proteins. The extended blade length allows you to slice with one long stroke instead of sliding the knife back and forth in a sawing motion, and the reduced surface area prevents the blade from sticking to the meat. With a sujihiki, clean slices of brisket or ultra thin applications like Carpaccio will become a breeze to execute.
Gin san (Silver #3) is a fine grained high carbon content stainless steel with the cutting feel and ease of sharpening of a carbon steel. The cutting quality is similar to that of a shirogami(White) steel. typically has an HRC of 60.
