Suijihiki for Mom

Wed Jul 18, 2012 4:42 pm

I'd to solicit some feedback from the forum on recomending a 240 suij for Mom. I'd like to keep the budget around $100. What do you think?

Mark what would you buy from your collection that is around $100.

She doesn't care if its yo or wa. Like it to be easy to care for but she has a few tojiros so carbon steel is not an issue. Also, like it to be double beveled. What do you think?

There are a lot of really nice sujis with Wa handles that are affordable, but they are a little more money. Most noteable is the Richmond Laser suji that will be available in the near future. When the Richmond Laser suji is available, it will easily be the best suji on the market for the price, and as good as many more expensive sujihikis.

I just sent an e-mail to Mark. Afreed a Richmond Suji would be a fine addition, just don't think mom wants to wait six months though

Ye the tojiro is a nice affordable one,but I had to thin mine quite a bit for use as a multipurpose. And the handle Im not a fan of, its big and blocky. Good for the humble/ young professional cook, but for a mom I think Id go for a konosuke 210 petty but thats just me.

I have a fuji suji in SS. Has great geometry, I wish I would have got the carbon version but I still love the knife and its in your budget. I was deterred from the tojiro due to the comments on thinning.

I had one of the Fuji Carbon 270 Suji's and a 270 gyuto in Carbon. Nice edge, better F&F handle wise than Hiro AS's I have played with. They were both nice and thin and fairly cleanly ground. I was surprised at how nice they were for the price. Unfortunately, one of my buddies saw them and bought both off of me before I could use them :(

Mark sent this to my yesterday. I think i'm going to wait and get my piece of that Ton AEB'L he is sitting on.

Hi Dennis,

The sujis are supposed to be done in 7 weeks and they will be made out of AEB-L from the ton we're getting.

The AEB-L cleavers are next up and they should be done later this week.

The M390 Ultimatums are due after the cleavers so they are still a couple weeks out.



Kind Regards
Mark Richmond

The Richmond Laser suji will be available tomorrow. The Artifex suji will take about 2 months according to Lamson but I wouldn't count on it. They always miss their deadlines.
