Ohishi Tsuchime SLD Kiritsuke Sujihiki 270mm Maple Handle
A line under the company Akifusa, Ohishi refers to the name of a small village near Mount Fuji where their knives are made. Coincidentally, Ohishi sounds very similar to “Oishi!” - a phrase people in Japan say to show their appreciation for a delicious meal. Carrying both Japanese and Western handled knives, Ohishi’s goal is to help people everywhere create “Oishi meals using Ohishi knives.”
The Ohishi SLD line is a perfect blade to get a taste of semi-stainless steel without the full maintenance headache, thanks to the stainless cladding that protects most of the surface area from rust, while you can enjoy the long edge life and sharpness of SLD steel.
A slicer ('Sujiihki' in Japanese) is a valuable tool for skinning, trimming and/or portioning protein items (fillet of salmon or turkey breast). Depending on the length, professionals use it as a utility blade or use it during service on the line. For home cooks, a slicer is a great blade for those special times of the year where you want to get even slices without striations on your turkey breasts and other roasts.
