Description: Prior to starting Sea Rose Knifeworks, Sasha Rosenfeld was a professional cook in Seattle for 15 years. When he made the move from chef de cuisine to stay-at-home dad and part time prep cook, he began taking blacksmithing classing and began forging his first kitchen knives in his backyard while he daughter was napping. In the fall of 2018, Rosenfeld decided to step away from professional kitchens for good and opened Sea Rose Knifeworks.
This sujihiki is a high performance slicing knife. The long, slender blade with a keen cutting edge is perfect for slicing ham, roasts, or sushi rolls. At 9-1/3 inches, the blade allows you to slice with one long stroke -- despite being easy to control -- instead of sliding the knife back and forth in a aswing motion. The result is a superior, clean cut.
The blade was hand forged from 1084 carbon steel. A Fujiwara-inspired finger notch encourages a pinch grip for greater control. The blade has tremendous, thin geometry and will effortless slice and chop. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The handle is contoured from stabilized bog oak. This wood has been buried in a Ukranian peat bog for 7600 years! The extremely low oxygen conditions of the bog protect the wood from normal decay, while the underlying peat provides acidic conditions where iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood, gradually giving it a distinct dark brown to almost black color. Alternating nickel silver stabilized box elder burl spacers add a dramatic contrast. This is an extremely comfortable handle. You won't want to put it down, even after hours of use
Exceptional work throughout!
