Ohishi Tsuchime SLD Ajikiri 105mm Maple Handle
The Ohishi Tsuchime SLD Ajikiri is a stout blade with a fantastic performance with ease of maintenance that features an aesthetically pleasing hammered ('Tsuchime' in Japanese) finish. It is quite thin behind the edge for easy cutting through dense root vegetables, but still retains its thickness on the spine, offering stability when cutting. In addition, you can enjoy the long edge life and sharpness of SLD semi-stainless steel without worrying much about rusting, thanks to the stainless cladding. We highly recommend this Ohishi SLD Ajikiri for all cooks looking for an all-purpose blade with a longer lasting edge than other full stainless steels, without too much oxidization concerns of high carbon steel knives.
This Ajikiri is a fun little knife that has a paring knife's length but much more height, giving you the ability to do more cutting board work. This little knife is great for small fruits or veggies, and super versatile and different from your regular paring knife! It was originally used to cut small fish called 'horse mackerel (Aji in Japanese)', and made in a single-bevel design, but this one from Tadafusa is double-side. We recommend these blades to anyone looking for a versatile and short blade that will keep an edge for a long time and take on a beautiful patina along the edge.
