Hitohira Futana SB Kuro Tsuchime 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, and a benign discolouration will form regardless).
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.
