Suisin Ao-ko Mizu Honyaki
酔心 水本焼 • 青二鋼
Suisin Brand knives are made in traditional fashion using established methods of forging to produce classic knives. Suisin knives feature slightly wider blade edges and a heavier feel in the hand than other makers’ knives. These superb honyaki knives are forged from ultra-high grade ao-ko steel, an extremely limited and exclusive resource in Japan. Both the kensaki (sword-tip) yanagi and sakimaru (rounded-tip) takobiki are used for making flawless slices of sashimi and sushi toppings.
