  • The Suisin Damascus Takobiki is rendered in Blue #2 steel. It sharpens more easily and has superior sharpness than the other blue steels, all while having better edge retention than the white steels. Being that the takobiki is thinner than a yanagiba, it passes through denser foods (e.g. octopus, which this shaped derives its name from) with less resistance. To top it off, it has a perfectly executed damascus/suminagashi cladding that looks quite elegant. The fit-and-finish of this slicer is unrivaled.
  • Historically, the takobiki shape developed out of the spatial restrictions of the Kanto region (Tokyo area). Chefs would work in smaller spaces and slicing would take place while seated. Therefore, a straight cutting edge became more functional and allowed slicing to be more efficient with the restriction in movement.
