Kanetsugu Pro S knives have Katana Handle motif of hollow 18-8 stainless steel handles seamlessly fitted to their blades. They are very sanitary, non-slip, comfortable, light weight and well balanced. The blades of the Pro S series have a custom-designed convex blade profile that provides outstanding cutting performance and thin cutting edges, which are suitable for fine cutting tasks. The blades are made from AUS-8 Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel and are corrosion-resistant, tough, strong and easy to re-sharpen. These characteristics make these knives very suitable for first-time users of Japanese knives, but cost-conscious professionals will also appreciate them.
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.

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.
