Gesshin Ginga 270mm Stainless Wa-Sujihiki/Takobiki Hybrid

  • The Gesshin Ginga line is a custom line we have produced for us exclusively.  These knives are very thin and light and have great fit and finish.  The spine and choil are rounded and polished.  The steel is a very fine grained stainless steel hardened to about 61HRC.  These knives take a great edge, sharpen easily, resist chipping well, and have great cutting performance due to their awesome geometry.


    With the popularity of the sakimaru takobiki shape, we often get customers asking about them, but really looking for something more like a sujihiki. We thought it would be fun to make a double bevel version, and when we received our prototype a few years ago, we were very happy with it. Not only does it look amazing and work well as a slicer, it is particularly well suited to jamon and prosciutto. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. 


    The Gesshin Ginga knives are exceptional stainless knives for both professional and home use.  They have a great profile and great geometry.  Thanks to their thin grind, you will find that these knives resist wedging in foods and make your cutting tasks a lot easier.
