Thread: Zensho/Yoshikane SLD Sujihiki 270mm

  1. #1

    Zensho/Yoshikane SLD Sujihiki 270mm

    I got some Yoshikane/Zensho 270mm Suji
    For first time they are made of SLD steel without Damaskus, first time i asked Yoshikane to make them, he told me he only make SLD in Damaskus.
    But i was able to get only 2 in SLD Kasumi, as mistake !!

    This Suji has just perfect profile wide at handle and narrow at tip, make it also very good as multipurpose knife. Super thin behind the edge and still very little flex because of super hard SLD steel.
    With that knife i can clearly see the different between SKD with 0.95 carbon and SLD with 1.5 carbon.

    It have been a while since i made cutting video, but when i got the knife i just wanted to cut something

    So here you go 270 mm Suji SLD


    Made also video for 240 mm Gyuto in SKD, also very thin behind the edge and no flex problem because its wide then Suji




    Edit: Ohh yes and sharpness is out of the box, i did not sharpen them !!!

    Very cool knives. Out of curiousity, why is the 270 suji so much more expensive than the 240 gyuto?

    2 different steels, SKD with 0.95 carbon and SLD with 1.5 carbon.

    Even if they were the same steel, Yoshikane always seems to charge more for their sujis, even for the same lengths...I never understood why.

    Regardless, I love that suji.

    Yes, actually he takes more for Sujis then Gyutos but not by much.
    But that one made from SLD is quite a difference from SKD, i have also Shigefusa Suji and its thicker then Yoshi SLD and have more flex.
