 Post subject: Slicing Knife Recommendations?

I'm looking for a good knife for slicing cooked hams extremely thinly. I have a wusthof with granton edge, which does the job but I'm looking for something thinner and sharper. I'm considering the fujiwara FKS 270 mm sujihiki with dimples, the fujiwara carbon sujihiki, and the tojiro 270 mm sujihiki. I was thinking the scalloped fujiwara would probably be best. Please share your thoughts.

I've used the fujiwara carbon. Very thin blade and easy to sharpen. The handle is decent for the price.
Fairly reactive steel and will have a dark patina. May be a good option if don't mind the carbon balde (wiped and dried during use) I think it would be a good upgrade from vustof.

Of the three the Fujiwara Carbon....dimples are not very effective IMHO.

The Fujiwara carbon is a great knife for the money....will take a nice edge and is pretty darn thin.

Thanks for the recommendations. I thought the dimples would help since cook's illustrated top-rated slicer, the Victorinox has them. (I would get that knife but don't like the handle and find the Japanese sharper than European knives. What about the Richmond 270 mm sujihiki? Seems like another good buy. I'm leaning toward the Fuji carbon.

Are you asking about the Artifex.....that would be a good one as well. I don't think as thin though.

Yes, I know I'm in the wrong crowd with this recommendation but I've sliced a few hams. The old Chicago Cutlery RB10S (non-serrated), sharpened to the nines, does a great job on a ham. Certainly, you'll need to sharpen it every couple of hams but it takes minutes (500/2000)and they sell for $20 on Ebay. Not exactly Japanese steel but if you need a dedicated ham knife....I'm just sayin'. Additionally, consider a good slicing machine if you've got a lot of ham - "good" being the key word.

If you're talking cuttin' stuff beyond ham....I don't know. Trying to decide on that 'special' knife for myself at this very moment.

Thanks, Adam. I've read that the blade indentations are useless if they don't extend to the cutting edge. It appears that the Fujiwara's don't, so it seems the extra $ for the granton edge is a waste. I like the idea of a really thin carbon steel knife. Thanks for the recc.
