In a traditional sushi kitchen, the knife is something special. A far cry from an ordinary steel blade, a sushi knife was crafted under the same practices that produced Japan’s famous katana swords. They were made from the same high-quality carbon steel, and had to be sharpened only on one side in order to retain its exceptional edge. Such knives would have to be made in both right and left-handed varieties, with the right-handed knife sharpened on the right edge and the left-handed knife sharpened on the left edge.
