For those of you who want to get into Japanese cutlery but don't want to spend too much we introduce the Tsuchime line from Ittetsu Hamono! Ittetsu is the shops house brand and we've been working for a long time to find high performing, affordable knives to offer our customers. These are made for us in a factory setting in Seki city, a region renowned for its Cutlery manufacturing which dates back centuries. These knives are great for home cooks and beginner chef's as they are easy to maintain being made from Stainless steel, are super duper sharp right out of the box and have a more familiar western style handle.
The Sujihiki is meant for all things slicing. The long slender blade allows the user to perform nice long strokes and avoid sawing through proteins which leads to perfect, thin slices and no more tearing. Carving roasts, slicing brisket, thinly slicing fish are all within its grasp.
