About Suisin Saika
The Suisin Saika was originally a collaboration line between the famous blacksmith master Kenjiro Doi and his son Itsuo Doi. As of 2013, Master Kenjiro Doi has officially retired and has passed on his legacy to his son. The Suisin Saika is now crafted by Itsuo Doi using the same techniques to craft the original Saika line.
Suisin knives are crafted from the heart. From the initial design to the finished product, knives are repeatedly put to test in professional kitchens before they are released to the public. These knives are the unique by-product of a collaboration between the craftsmen and chefs. Suisin craftsmen are constantly challenging themselves to find new ways to ensure long edge retention and easy maintenance. Their goal is to provide chefs worldwide with the quality and careful craftsmanship that will allow them the precision and control to effortlessly create beautiful food.
