Looks a bit shorter than the ones I see that Mark sells, but I'm a neophyte so what do I know!

I'm going to tell you straight up.... you can julienne onions faster than that by chopping with a chef's knife. :ugeek:

It's a sujihiki, as Mr. Rookie said. He's always right.... he and his blue friend. :mrgreen:

No doubt about the julienned onion, but i was more interstex in what he did with the green onion, mango and the chery tomato rose he made. Those were razor thin cuts .....at least to me. That tip looked triangulated if thats the right word.

Anyway, what would YOU use for this type of work? Ive gotten into making sushi the last few years and wanted a knife for that kind of work. I have a Doi for the fish and im looking for a knife to join it.

i could do the same job and probably easier with a chef's knife. he's just used to using a sujihiki with those jobs since he works as a sushi chef and the limited space on the counter also limits him from using a full size suji, chef knife, and whatever else he would need.
