The secret behind the outstanding cutting performance of Kanetsugu knives is their custom-designed convex blade profile and their thin cutting edges, which are suitable for fine cutting tasks. The AUS-8 Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel blades of the Pro M series are corrosion-resistant, tough, strong and easy of re-sharpen. These characteristics make them very suitable for first-time users of Japanese knives, but cost-conscious professionals will also appreciate them. Their handles are made from black-colored pakkawood, which is water-resistant, durable and very stable. The rounded handle shape provides a comfortable, secure grip and is well balanced against the weight of the blade.
The long, narrow, graceful blade of the Sujihiki is particularly useful for trimming away sinew and fat from meat, finely slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.
