The Kasumi VG 10 Pro Sujihiki Knife 20 cm is a double bevel slicing knife with a very thin 20cm blade (the thinner the blade, the thinner the slice can be) that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredient's freshness.
Light long and lean, it is designed to slice
through large pieces of meat or poultry while the pointed tip is useful
for cutting around bones and joints.
The Sujihiki slicer can
carve and fabricate large roasts and other meats and fish, and can be
used for thinly slicing other ingredients such as cucumbers or smoked
salmon. It is the Western-style equivalent of the traditional Yanagi
Sujihikis commonly range from 200mm to 300mm though there are both shorter and longer examples than this range. Users can choose the length appropriate to their needs based on the product the knife will be used on and the available space in the kitchen.
Kasumi knives are produced by Sumikama Hamono Cutlery in Seki, Japan. Sumikama Cutlery specializes in producing knives from very advanced materials with the most advanced manufacturing techniques.
Sumikama, the manufacturer of Kasumi knives, with more than ten years of production of "super steel" knives, has developed the first all VG-10 "super steel" western style knives.
This series of Kasumi knives is referred to as the VG-10 Pro series.
Opposite to the multilayered clad knives with a decorative pattern on the blade, the Pro knives are single ply knives with VG-10 "super steel" blades. A single ply knife offers more stability in the blade, since you do not have multiple steels with different Rockwell hardness as you do with a multilayered knife. With the Kasumi VG-10 Pro knives, you get 4 times more "super steel" than clad knives.
The KASUMI VG10 PRO knives are hand made, availing of the experience of skillful professionals and experts and are produced in the same way with the Japanese traditional swords.
V-Gold No. 10 is a high carbon stainless steel with cobalt, chromium, manganese, molybdenum and vanadium for added durability and ease of sharpening. V-Gold No. 10 is a high quality steel developed exclusively for knives and scissors. The addition of 1.4% cobalt to this steel requires special tempering in order to maximize the full benefit of this steel and to achieve a Rockwell hardness of 61 - 62 degrees, with a high content of carbon specially developed for knives. Sumikama as the original producer of VG-10 damascus knives has plenty of experience working with VG-10 steel.
The Pro handle is a composite material made from durable marble resin in high gloss finish, with a lustrous, shimmering granite-like appearance.
This beautiful, ergonomic handle has a distinctive mosaic pin to add to its beauty.
Made in Seki, Japan with a lifetime warranty.
