Ocean Spray Sushi Slicer


A rustic double bevel protein slicing knife, hand forged from reclaimed rasp steel.

Out of stock


One of the final prototype blades from the culinary project, this knife was intended as an agile protein slicer. The proportions are similar to a small yanagiba. It sits lightly in the hand and keeps the weight slightly forward on the cutting edge.

The construction is muku and the double bevel cross-section works in either hand. The blade has a slight koba edge to add some strength but the main use should be for slicing. The acute angle and hard temper will hold a keen edge if well cared for.

The friction fit handle was hand carved from a piece of two-tone Ocean Spray ironwood and has some lovely surface texture and live edge areas. Ocean Spray grows locally on Vancouver Island and is a very hard and dense wood with warm tones. The handle is finished with 100% pure tung oil. The blade is about 7.5″ long and the overall length is just over 12″.

Material: Reclaimed rasp steel, Ocean Spray iron wood
