Aogami Super Tsuchime Kurochi 270mm Sujihiki Rosewood Blonde Ferrule Handle by Tsunehisa
Tsunehisa is a Tosa-based collective supplying knives from blacksmiths across the different regions of Japan. Offering a great deal of variety of both steels and finishes under their banner, Tsunehisa is committed to excellent value while providing a handmade fit and finish.
These knives are made with Blue Super high carbon steel clad in stainless steel for enduring edge retention and ease of maintenance. The hammered finish assists with food release as the knife travels downward in the cut by creating pockets of air between steel and food, making for a world class cutting experience. Kurouchi is an inert layer of iron oxide leftover from heat treatment that serves to prevent corrosion.
A sujihiki is the ideal knife for slicing in the kitchen. They are long and sleek in stature, creating minimal friction and an easy cut through both cooked and raw meats.
