A textured Sakimaru Sujihiki provided to our shop by Karol Karys. Karol is a blacksmith out of Kraków, Poland. He specializes in designing kitchen cutlery inspired by brutalism, a style of architecture characterized by minimalist constructions that showcase bare building materials and structural elements over decorative design. Think exposed concrete and steel. These knives are inspired by such designs.

The detail on this knife is extraordinary. Karol textures the entire blade and handle to give an eroded appearance. This is most clearly depicted in the brass ferrule. The end of the handle as well has an almost torn and chopped appearance. It is stunning to think about the amount of effort that goes into all the detailing of this knife.

Even with all the texturing and eroding nature of the knife, it is as comfortable as you could hope. The spine and choil are spared the weathering and are instead nicely rounded for user comfort. These are very much still functional tools.

Introducing the kitchen sword! Or BBQ sword if that's more up your alley. This is a stiff Sakimaru Sujihiki with an appropriately thick spine and forward weight to maximize slicing performance on large cuts of beef and roasts. This resides in a honyaki construction with a beautifully darkened Hamon. The black micarta handle has a significant amount of grip in its texture. This will help to prevent slippage when working with any of the aforementioned large cuts of meat that this knife is designed for.
