Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The suji is usually a bit lighter and somewhat more flexible than a yanagi, which makes it useful for trimming as well as slicing duties. Another notable difference between the sujihiki and the yanagi is the edge shape. A yanagi will be single beveled, while the suji has a double bevel.
- Foodal
It’s also very nice with the double bevel that it’s both a right hand and left-handed sushi knife.
The VG-10 steel also holds its sharpness very well. It will take a long time before you need to resharpen this knife. When it is time for resharpening, you will find that it’s very easy to bring the edge back to its previous sharp state.
This knife is stain resistant.

What reviewers didn't like

The only downside is that we could not find any warranty information on this particular knife.
Tojiro is a Japanese company, and perhaps they haven’t really thought about how they’re selling to non-Japanese customers. The manual is just horrible, as though the translator didn’t quite know their job.
