Looking for a sushi knife

Sat Dec 15, 2012 3:07 pm

Hi,

Found your website on google and I'm interested in purchasing a sushi knife. I'm a beginner but I've decided I want to learn how to make great sushi at home so I wanted to ask what would be a good recommendation for size and knife brand. I'm right handed and don't mind a single edge for maximum sharpness. I don't think I'm ready for the top of the line $400 plus knives but I don't want to have excuses for myself and say that it's the knife and not the user.

Also, please provide some recommendations for sharpening tools/methods.

Thanks,

Mike

This Kaneshige is a great starter yanagi for someone like you. It's a really good knife and half the price of knives in it's category. White #3 is an excellent knife steel for beginners because it's hard enough to take a really good edge but not chippy and easy to sharpen. We got a special price on these since they were overstocked and we don't have many left:

Thanks for your help Mark. What about sharpening? I don't have stone, I just use one of those handheld sharpeners for double edge knives right now.
