Ohishi Blue #1 Kurouchi Sujihiki 240mm 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 Blue #1 Kurouchi line is a perfect blade to get a taste of full carbon steel, and learn all of its characteristics / maintenance at an entry price point.
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.
