This Gin-San Sanmai series is the perfect example of the Japanese design philosophy Shibui, a balance of simplicity and complexity. The simple elegance and austere look, create a powerful appearance. The three-layer blade with Gin-San (Silver-3) core is thin, strong, and precise; and the walnut octagonal handle provides a comfortable grip. A sujibiki is a superior slicing knife. Its long and narrow blade assist in slicing meat, fish and vegetables with accuracy and ease.
