Hitohira FJ VG-1 Sujihiki 210mm Pakka Handle
Hitohira is our brand new supplier that has been absolutely killing it. The president, Mr. Hokuto Aizawa, has traveled the world in his mid-20s and saw firsthand how Japanese kitchen knives are adored throughout the northern hemisphere and decided to make the products even more accessible. Now, Hitohira brings many new and old favourites back into our shelves with consistency, making our clients even happier.
For Hitohira all lines, there are abbreviations and pseudonyms to organize and identify the products. If you have any questions about the individual craftsman involved, send us an email, and we can do our best to clarify within our limits.
Cooks in busy kitchen lines looking for a high performance stainless steel blade will appreciate these as much as home cooks will, particularly those working with a lot of liquid and acidic ingredients. Alternatively, these make fantastic gifts for loved ones and those close to you.
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.
