Tojiro Slicer Damascus in 210mm blade length is a great selection for a handy, low-maintenance and affordable slicer knife. The 210mm (8.3") size works well in professional kitchens with limited workspace or is the go-to length for home cooks.
Sujihiki or slicer knives are primarily intended for long pulls and precise cuts of meat and fish. The long and narrow blade is particularly useful for slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in a single drawing motion, from heel to tip.
The excellent VG-10 steel with the hardness of 61 HRC is clad into 62 layers of softer stainless steel with the Damascus pattern, making every knife a unique looking piece.
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese round Wa handle made of durable oak wood with a buffalo horn ferrule. The handle has an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users.
