Sakai Kikumori Nihonko – Sujihiki 270mm
With a passionate devotion to knife-making as well as working with some of the most skilled craftsman in Japan, Sakai Kikumori has been making cutlery of incredible quality and performance since its inception in 1926.
The Kikumori Nihonko Sujihiki is a mono-steel blade made from SK Carbon Steel. SK Rusts slower than other Japanese Carbon Steels such as Aogami and Shirogami and has notable toughness for a blade of HRC 63. The blade is thin and easy to sharpen and will hold edges for respectable periods of time. The handle is a Western Style Handle made from Pakka Wood with a half bolster. The Sujihiki has a long narrow blade, perfect for cutting protein into thin slices and trimming off unwanted sinew and fat from meat and due to the length of the blade, slicing can be done in one fluent motion.
- Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
- Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
- Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
- Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
- Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
- Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
- Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
- Never transport knives unprotected.
Naniwa – Stone Flattener 24 Grit
The Naniwa – 24 Grit Flattening Stone produces extremely flat results on all water stones, ceramic or traditional.
Always make sure the flattening stone is wet before use. This large flattening stone comes with rubber feet for grip while running the dished whetstone across the flattening stone.
This stone is Extra coarse for a super fast flattening experience. We use these because of the high volume of hand sharpening. The stone cuts quickly, but can leave fine grooves in the higher grit stones, which should be smoothed with your dressing stone. For persons doing a more normal volume of sharpening, the large 24 grit provides the benefit of truer flat without the grooving, it just takes longer.
