I bought this yesterday, and I love it as Im not a sushi chef, however at our establishment, we do lots of sashimi plate ups and Im the one that does them, so I was just wondering what kind of knife im working with. It wasnt expensive, and it has a great edge and look to it, and its super freaking sharp.

While I can't find a company site, this link has some information http://cgi.ebay.com/AUTHENTIC-JAPANESE-SUS...1QQcmdZViewItem

Your knife is SS and it does not say a laminate which is one of the manufacturing techniques and usually results in an easy to sharpen blade,

A fully forged knife is on the high end but not of SS. They are very expensive.

THIS ebay item is your exact knife

It's not a great knife but used as a slicer of fish it should do a pretty decent job for quite a while. Don't take the description from the seller as accurate either. Most of them are not known to be very knowledgable...and Swordandgift is no exception.

Thanks guys, as I said its not a very expensive knife. It only cost me 29$, I was in this restaurant supply store and they had some Japaneese knives for sale and I bought the Sashimi knife. I have nothing but Wusthof in my roll otherwise. Thanks guys.
