Sakai Takayuki Sanpou White #2 Sujihiki 240mm

Immerse yourself in the artistry of the Sakai Takayuki Sanpou White #2 Sujihiki, a masterpiece hand-forged by Sakai's most gifted young blacksmiths and craftsmen. The name 'Sanpo,' inspired by the Buddhist concept of the three treasures - steel, fire, and water - encapsulates the essence of traditional knife crafting, symbolizing the harmony of elements used to create this exceptional knife.

This 240mm Sujihiki, forged from premium Shirogami #2 (White #2 Carbon Steel), offers unparalleled sharpness and edge retention. Designed for professionals demanding the highest quality, it features a meticulously hand-sharpened blade, a luxurious Wenge wa-handle, and an impeccable fit and finish. The blade's thin profile, combined with the high carbon content of White #2 steel, ensures a cutting experience that is both precise and effortless.

As a carbon steel knife, it achieves a remarkable sharpness but requires mindful maintenance. It is essential to keep the blade clean, dry, and occasionally oiled to protect against rust, especially when not in use for prolonged periods. Though reactive with high-acid foods, the care invested in this knife pays off in its exceptional performance and longevity.

About the Sujihiki Shape

The Sujihiki, Japan's answer to the Western slicer, excels in finesse and precision. Its thin, hard steel blade ensures outstanding edge retention, while the steeply angled bevel achieves unmatched slicing accuracy. Whether you're filleting, carving, or performing general slicing tasks, the Sujihiki is your go-to for long, drawing cuts.
