This is the special order made Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Limited Model, and available with limited quantity. Perfectly mirror polished VG-10 Honyaki Kiritsuke-Sujihiki 300mm comes with octagon shaped magnolia wooden handle.
Perfectly Mirror Polished VG-10 blade has strong corrosion-resistance and can provide very good edge sharpness and edge retention. The Curved Kiritsuke-Sujihiki Blade makes the Japanese Sword Taste and uniqueness. This knife is designed by our our loyal customer, who is professional chef and serious Japanese Knife Users.
The Kirisuke-Sujihiki has a very similar blade profile to the ‘regular’ Sujihiki, but it has what is commonly known as a 'reverse tanto' tip, or ‘clipped point’, which is very useful for precision cutting. Apart from this difference, the Kirisuke-Sujihiki functions in the same way as the ‘plain' Sujihiki knife.
The long, narrow, graceful blade of the Kiritsuke-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.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
