    Misono Sweden 270 Suji

    So with Hiro AS no longer available, I was thinking about a dragon suji, as I have very generously been offered a knife for my birthday next week.

    Do you all think that this a good idea?

    I have a 240. It's a very good blade. I wouldn't hesitate.

    This just in from Koki:-


    Thank you very much for your new inquiry and interest.

    We apologize for the availability of Hiromoto Aogami Super TJ-90AS Sujihiki 270mm.

    Maker Hiromoto used to make Sujihiki knives in Aogami Super Series. But they already discontinued the Sujihiki items and Sujihiki items got completely sold out and out of stock before.

    Mr. Nagao (President of Hiromoto company) is 75 years old. He is going to get retired in near future. Maker Hiromoto is already discontinuing some models (such as TJ-50AS Petty 120mm, TJ-40AS Santoku160mm. Once current inventory of TJ-50AS will be out of stock, this item will be completely discontinued. TJ-40AS Santoku 160mm already got completely out of stock.

    We apologize again for the availability and situation of Hiromoto Aogami Super Sujihiki knives.

    I don't have the Swedish misono suji but I do have the gyuto and rode it hard for many years on the line and I still love it. It's one of those knives that I can use even when it's not at its sharpest.

    I wouldn't hold out for it. They stopped making the wa handle knives a couple years ago. It sounds like they're starting to wind down production as Mr Nagao heads for retirement. There are some other options out there, but Hiromoto was always hard to beat on price. They definitely were the starter AS knife for a lot of folks, myself included.
