Hitohira Futana S3 Nashiji Sujihiki 240mm Cherry Wood Handle
The Futana series is a great series for anyone getting into Japanese kitchen knives for elegant aesthetics and beautifully finished wooden handles. The S3 line features a fully stainless blade for ease of maintenance, whereas the SB line boasts Blue Super carbon steel that will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, however).
We highly recommend the Futana blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
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.
