Sujihiki 24 cm Matsubara Blue #2 - Nashiji , walnut handle
Japanese meat knife - the Sujihiki
This beautiful sujihiki from the Matsubara forge complements your kitchen equipment in a special way. Sujihiki knives are similar to the ham knives we are more familiar with in Europe. The long blade with the comparatively low blade height of the blade blade makes it possible to cut meat, ham but also fish in a long clean cut. This type of blade thus also has a strong resemblance to the Yanagiba knife, whereby Sujihiki are almost always ground on both sides.
This sujihiki has a blade length of 240mm and a matte nashiji surface on the blade blade. This surface results from the 3-layer blade construction, consisting of the softer sheath steel and the very hard inner core steel, which forms the cutting edge of the knife. The Nashiji finish has a rustic appearance because the blade blade is not polished. The core of the blade is made of Blue #2 steel, which keeps its sharpness for a long time and reaches a hardness of about 62 HRC. A layer of softer stainless steel is welded around the blade core using the San Mai method. The softer stainless steel on the blade blade not only protects the inner steel core, but also gives the blade a certain degree of flexibility.
