Korin will not be continuing the Sajiuchi knives. As mentioned in a this post, they are not sharp out of the box. Mr. Sugai inspected each one when they came in as he always does and picked out the best ones, then returned the rest. We have Sajiuchi fan customers that requested them, so we resharpened and sold a few of the best quality pieces at our purchase price. Obviously, Korin doesn't plan to carry a brand that we have to resharpen each time a shipment comes in.
I apologize if selling these knives made Korin look bad for any reason. Please rest assured we have your best interest at heart.
Thank you for reading.
