Hello,

How are you?

In the past i was working at Boston and i bought a mac superior bread knife from you and loved the service.

Right now i am looking to buy a sujihiki.

The use of the sujihiki will be to slice proteins and prep fish. I would prefer a 270mm, stainless (or semi stainless) and a blade as much simetric as possible (i am lefty).

My budget is (at the most) 300$.

With the knife I also want to buy a flatener to my stone (I have a 1000/5000 combo stone that already have good signs of use).

Looking forward for your recomendations,

Joel

One of the better values on the site IMHO.

Never seen the Kohetsu suji's, but the other knives I've seen in the line were all very well made. It's also carbon core, stainless clad....but that's close enough, right?!?!

Either would make a great knife.

Great flattener.

The Konosuke HH or HD2 would be great, but OOS.

For a lapping plate, the Atoma 140 is pretty much the top drawer, but the Chinese one is dirt cheap and will work. It just has a tendency to stick to the stone's face.

A bit off topic, but if it wasn't a Suji that you were looking for, like let's say, you were looking for a Gyuto, I would rec to jump all over this 270: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kowh1fuwagy2.html

I was amazed to see it was in stock! :)

Thanks Dan,

The Konosuke HH looks like a real nice choice too.

Correct me if i´m wrong but: is the AEB-L a superior steel in comparison to the Sweedish?

"the eyes eat!" - the richmond with the maple handle is BEAUTIFUL!!! :roll:

As far as I am aware AEB-L is a Swedish steel.

"SWEDISH STEEL" as a whole is an umbrella term for any pure stainless steel in Japan from what I understand. There are very good concentrations of Iron in Sweden and so they have steels that can have very fine carbides. Misono is a knife brand that has a line in a "swedish steel" where as Kikuichi uses AEB-L in the Nickel Sweden Warikomi, which is actually a steel made in Sweden. I think? I could of course, be making all this up.

I'd pay the extra $10 in a heartbeat and get the Atoma 140 over the DMT8xxc for the flattening plate. It's great for major repairs too.
