Our 9½˝ Sushi Slicing Knife is a hand forged, triple layered structure. The center layer is rust resistant SKD die steel originally designed for cutting metal. The cladding layers are soft SUS-405 stainless steel. This gives the knife an exceedingly tough, long lasting edge and yet is easy to resharpen. This style of knife is commonly used for slicing Sushi rolls. But you will find it superb for slicing foods of all types. The stainless steel bolster between the blade and the handle is made from slices of hardwood impregnated with resin. The maker Mr. Tsuneo Yoshida is proud of the hand hammered surface which creates a well balanced knife of lasting beauty. The blade length is 9½˝, and overall length is 14½˝. Each knife is sent with a fully polished, razor sharp edge.

A Traditional Japanese Professional Knife (Hocho) varies from other kitchen knives in that it is sharpened with a bevel on only one side. The opposite side is slightly hollowed, similar to a Japanese chisel or woodworking knives. This makes it possibles to acheive a sharper edge than a knife a with a double bevel blade. Deba Knives have a thicker blade and are intended for reducing fish and meat to a more manageable size.
