The Kasumi Damascus Sujihiki Knife 24cm is a double bevel slicing knife with a long narrow blade that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredient's freshness.
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 knife.
Sujihikis commonly range from 240mm 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. Typically more length is preferred because it ensures that slices can be completed without resorting to sawing through the protein which can diminish the quality of the final product.
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.
Kasumi Damascus knives are made of VGold-10 super high carbon stainless steel with cobalt, manganese, molybdenum and vanadium for added durability and ease of sharpening. The addition of cobalt to the VG-10 steel requires special tempering in order to maximize the full benefit. The layers on both sides of the VG-10 core are made by repeatedly folding together two different types of SUS410 High Carbon Stainless Steel pounded to 3/1000th of an inch and then "clad" on each side of the VG10 core, until there's 16 exceedingly thin alternating layers.
The edge on a Kasumi knife is beveled at a 15° angle creating a very sharp edge.
Features a pakkawood (wood plastic composite material) handle secured with two stainless steel rivets, which looks and feels like wood, but is dishwasher safe. The other unique feature of the handle is the design. The oval-shaped handle actually has a ridge at the bottom, increasing control and grip.
