My cousin gave me one of these for my birthday. If you like making sushi at home, you should really get one of these. The blade is long and sharp and with a bit of practice, you can slice some restaurant quality sushi with it. The blade’s cutting profile is very different from western knives. A right handed knife will have a one sided bevel facing right, while a left handed knife would have the cutting bevel to the left. This bevel pushes the meat to the side of where the bevel is, making it easier to cut beautiful slices each and every single time.
The opposite side of the bevel is flat which makes the cut very straight and gives the surface of the fish a really nice sheen.
The length of the blade facilitates cutting the meat in one slice.
