Type of knife:
Sujihiki has a slender and long blade. Sujihiki is suitable for carving and slicing roast meat, poultry, raw meats, fish, and all other proteins.  The extended blade length allows you to slice with one long stroke instead of sliding the knife back and forth in a sawing motion. The slender blade avoids sticking to the proteins. If you often slice fish, meats, hams etc, Sujihiki is the best choice for your needs.
