Fujiwara Carbon Sujihiki Review

Review:Just got this in the mail yesterday. Once again, IMPECCABLE 3 days to the front door policy CKTG have. Upon opening of the box, there sat the Suji in all her shiny glory. I immediately did a paper test, the paper didn’t make a sound when I drew it through. My next step was to mustard patina, via Mark’s video. BOY DID THAT MAKE THIS KNIFE A BEAUTY. Upon close inspection, there is only ONE MINOR FLAW, in that near the end of the heel where the edge is, an EXTREMELY small area above the edge got a bit of the grind. Not enough to worry about, or even mention, however this is an attempt to state that FOR THE PRICE: You can’t get a better fit and finish. The wood scales are level with the tang all the way around, the handle is tightly riveted (it feels so seamless, if you put it in my hand blindfolded I couldn’t have told you the knife had an exposed tang through the handle), The edge is ground a PERFECT 70/30. It almost looks like a single bevel, with a hair thick back bevel. But it def is 70/30. As far as slicing, its a home run. I brought home a skirt steak just to try this on, ZERO difference between slicing it raw, and slicing it with a pan seared crust from a cast iron skillet. It was later brought to work with me, which I consider the ultimate knife test. I work as a Sous Chef for a food production commissary specializing in ready to eat, grab and go products. We have an ENORMOUS amount of prep we do daily, and this knife was subjected to Dicing 50 Lb bags of onions, Hundreds of pounds of brisket, cases of green peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, and even about 3 Lbs of green onions. Also to be a sadist, i decided to give it a whirl with 5 Lbs of sundried tomatoes. This knife performed like a champ, and along side my Richmond Addict is a true multitasker and one i will reach for often. If you are in the market for a SUJI, Look no further. Its cheap enough to not get yelled at by the Misses, and quality enough to not want to buy one again anytime soon. As always, big ups to Mark and the CKTG team. They continue to bring unparalleled service and dedication to the consumer, and it is greatly appreciated.
