Sukenari knives are solid mid-weight medium grinds that cut well but aren't as fragile as my other offerings. With a Teak handle, the knife balances at the "成" kanji for more cutting aggression. Sukenari measures their knife lengths from tip to machi, so the blade length runs short as their standard practice.
The finish on this knife can be described as Migaki (aka Polished), and Sukenari refers to it as "Hairline" because of the hair-like lines from spine to edge that the polishing abrasive leaves on the blade.
This knife has a simple polished look to it, but its finish and the grind consistency aren't as easy to achieve as one might think. The spine and choil aren't rounded, but they're eased from the factory for a comfortable cutting experience during most cutting tasks.
Ginsan steel sharpens easily and beautifully as a stainless alternative to white steel. It behaves like a carbon steel blade without the ability to form a substantial patina and the without much fear of rusting when left wet for a little while. Alongside this, Ginsan at 61 HRC has excellent toughness and solid edge retention, resulting to a very balanced steel overall. Basically, everything about this blade makes for a great introduction to high end Japanese knives with added peace of mind.
As with any knife purchase, professional sharpening is included in the price. I will provide final sharpening on the knife and tailor the knife's edge according to your preferences if you send me a message. If no special requests are made, the default edge I will put on this knife is a 1000/4000 grit hybrid capable of passing very extreme cutting tests.
