Thread: What's your favorite 300 mm sujihiki?

  1. #1

    What's your favorite 300 mm sujihiki?

    Hi,
    I'm dabbling in knifemaking and somewhere down the line I want to try a 300 mm sujihiki. I only have a 270 Hiro AS wa suji so my question goes out to the users of the 300 variety. So what's your favorite shape/brand/model and why?

    Thanks in advance

    Hattori FH.

    Because I prefer western-handled knives, and it's awesome!

    I bet it will be my new Shiogefusa , because I feel his knives have perfect geometry , heft and grind.

    I only have one 300 suji, the Hiromoto AS. Wish it were a wa handle, otherwise, I can't complain about it. It's been a good blade for me.

    FH series sounds good.
    Doug, is it in any way possible that you could post a tracing of the blade next to a ruler?

    Whoops, forgot to say anything about it. The Konosuke has perfect thinness, profile and weight/balance.

    The Pierre custom 300 suji that was for sale a bit ago looked to have an even flatter profile...it was different, but I really liked it. Would of purchased if my money wasn't already tied up.

    I've only seen one 300mm suji in person that I can remember.
