You may notice that when comparing the prices of Sushi chef knives made by Sukenari against those of other famous brands, Sukenari’s knives are available at a much lower price point.

Despite these relatively low prices, Sukenari makes no compromises in the quality of their products or the making processes used to create them: The blade heel and spine are finely hand polished for a comfortable and secure grip; The blade is finely sharpened and shiny, just waiting to be used by its new owner. When you examine Sukenari’s knives, their knife-making philosophy is clearly discernible, particularly the kind consideration they show to the users of their knives.
