What part or kind of geoduck gives crunchy slender slices?

I bought shucked geoduck from Sunny Supermarket in Toronto fresh three times now. After I purge this fresh shuck with saltwater, I sliced it. But slices are these squat wedges in pics 1-2!

But I want these skinny crunchy strips like pics 3-5.

Did I buy wrong kind of geoduck? Or wrong part?

Neither. You're slicing at the wrong angle. Rather than rolling up the siphon and chop it into rounds, you should unroll it and shave off the thin strips you desire: knife blade is almost parallel to the surface of the meat (source).
