Aogami # 2 (Blue Steel # 2)
Oval Cherry wood handle with a resin collar
Masakage Mizu Collection is handmade by Anryu-san, who has been a blacksmith for well over 50 years.
The Blade of the Masakage Mizu is super thin and cuts like a razor. The Hard Aogami #2 steel is laminated between softer layers of carbon steel.
Named Mizu (water), these blades have a blue/black kurouchi finish giving the impression of cold, deep water. Paired with an oval cherry wood handle these knives gives excellent bang for the buck.
Because the blade is not stainless it requires a bit more care. Keep the blade dry to avoid tarnish
and if you ever see a bit of rust on the blade remove it immediately with a coarse dish scrubber and soapy water.
About the Sujihiki:
The Sujihiki is a double edge slicing knife with a long narrow blade that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredient’s freshness. It is perfect for carving and slicing roasts, raw meats, fish, and all other proteins, and is famously used for sushi.
“Sujihiki” roughly translates to “Flesh Slicer” and it does exactly what the name suggests. The extended blade length allows you to slice with one long stroke, instead of sliding the knife back and forth in a sawing motion.
A Sujihiki is the Western-style equivalent of the traditional single-sided Yanagiba knife and should not to be mistaken with each other. The Sujihiki is therefore also easier to handle, as well as being thinner and lighter. Sujihiki Slicers commonly range from 240mm to 360mm
