Ohishi Nashiji Blue #2 Kiritsuke Sujihiki 240mm Maple Handle
The Tadafusa Nashiji sujihiki is a perfect blade to get a taste of carbon 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 blue #2 carbon steel. We find this construction to be the best of both types of steel, and hope more people try out this amazing high-carbon 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.
