【What is Sujihiki knife?】 Suji-hiki means ‘tendons cutter’. It is literally used to cut the muscles/tendons of meat. Along with Gyuto knives, as well as bone-cutting knives/peeling knives, it is a knife that was introduced by Westerners, then developed along with the developing meat-eating culture in Japan. When cutting a cattle, it is vital to carefully cut off the muscle so that the texture remains intact as ensuring that only the tastiest parts of the animal remain for cooking (steaks). Yes, it is the best tool to cut the meat, essentially for that reason. Nowadays, however, more and more people are using the Suji-hiki knife for sashimi, though. Suji-hiki knife is a western origin whilst Yanagi-ba knife is a Japanese origin, their histories could be quite different, yet their shapes are surprisingly similar.
