Mainly why you are not going to find many, if any (I've never seen one) KU finished sujis, as it's primarily a protein knife. No need to protect the cladding from reacting with acidic foods and such.

    Someone please correct me if I'm talking out my butt, lol

    Btw, what knives are you talking about. Not that it matters. Just wondering
    Takeda and Mortaka make KU sujihikis, and Murray Carter has made several, one of which graces Lefty's kitchen:

    Yup - my Carter suji isn't going anywhere. Thin, nimble and very, very sharp.

    Nice to fix a problem like that with your own hands, eh?
