The Sukenari SG2 240mm Gyuto, a Japanese chef knife, features SG2 core steel renowned for its long-lasting edge retention, highlighted by an HRC rating of 63. It has a migaki finish, providing a clean, minimalist aesthetic, and is complemented by a traditional octagonal magnolia handle. This knife showcases a thin convex grind, ensuring smooth and effortless cutting. While it's thin, it's not delicate, making it a perfect, reliable daily driver for both home cooks and professional chefs. The knife also comes with a magnolia saya for protective storage.

❖ Founded in 1933 in Toyama, Japan, Sukenari expertly blends time-honored forging methods with contemporary steel to create exceptional kitchen knives. Celebrated for its mizu-honyaki technique, echoing traditional Japanese sword craftsmanship, Sukenari, now under the guidance of the Hanaki family's third generation, utilizes advanced materials like ZDP-189 and HAP-40. Collaborations with professional chefs drive their continual refinement. With a rich heritage spanning nearly a century, Sukenari stands as a beacon of traditional craftsmanship and modern innovation, appealing to professional chefs and discerning home cooks alike.

Care Guide

Proper care is essential for Japanese kitchen knives. Here are some important points to consider:
  • Use a whetstone to maintain sharpness. Avoid electric sharpeners and pull-through sharpeners, as they are not suitable for Japanese kitchen knives. Honing rods, typically used for western-style knives, may potentially damage the edge, particularly if you're a beginner.

  • Choose a wooden or rubber cutting board instead of bamboo or poly boards to preserve the knife's edge.

  • Keep the knife clean and dry, especially if it is made of carbon steel. Carbon knives are prone to rusting. If you prefer a lower-maintenance option, stainless or stainless-clad carbon knives are recommended.

  • Avoid using the knife to cut through bones or frozen foods. It's best to use a separate knife specifically designed for these tasks.

  • When cutting, use a smooth and fluid motion, avoid twisting or torquing the blade. This technique helps maintain control and minimizes the risk of damage.

  • Never put Japanese kitchen knives in the dishwasher. Instead, hand wash them with mild soap, ensuring thorough cleaning, and then dry them completely before storing.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your Japanese kitchen knives. Remember, proper care and attention will enhance your culinary experience and protect your investment.
