The Blacksmith

Based in the knife making capital of Japan (Seki City, Gifu Prefecture), Seki Kanetsugu was founded in 1918 by Matsujiro Kawamura, descendant of the famous swordsmith Kanetsugu, who worked during Nanboku-cho period. The Saiun line features a VG-10 core steel heat treated quite high at 62-64, a stainless damascus cladding, and a western style black micarta handle with a stainless bolster. These knives tend to balance more towards the handle, similar to a traditional European knife so if you're looking for that balance point, and a similar western profile with a steel upgrade and thinner blade look no further.

The Knife

Sujihiki translates to flesh slicer, and this knife does just that! The long slender blade allows you to slice in one long stroke as opposed to sawing back and fourth, keeping the meat juices where they belong, off the board and in the meat! While this is a more task specific knife that may only come out on special occasions for a home cook, this shape can be invaluable to a professional working a grill or meat station. 


Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
