cutting the California sushi roll, for this use a razor sharp chef knife buy one here: chef knives.

use quick slicing action and don’t use too much down pressure, it is very important that you have a extremely sharp knife.

i usually discard the end pieces and cut the roll in to 8 to 10 pieces, sushi restaurants cut the roll in to 8 pieces and serve the end pieces.
