Description: Korin is proud to announce the newest addition to our coveted collection of knives. Available exclusively at Korin, these knives have all of the great qualities characteristic of the Masamoto yanagi and sport distinctive exotic hardwood handles. A must-have for the serious collector, the beautiful and unique wooden handles are a stunning complement to the fine craftsmanship of their hongasumi blades.

Renowned for its rich coloring, intricate grain pattern, luster and shine, Chinese Quince is a luxury wood prized for use in Buddhist alters, traditional Japanese furniture and traditional Asian instruments. This hard, durable wood is highly resistant to cracking and the elegant, languorous grain makes this highly sought-after knife a true collector’s item.

Featuring the legendary sharpness of shiro-ko (white) steel, the yanagi is used to slice boneless fish fillets for sushi and sashimi. The yanagi originated in the Kansai (Osaka) region, its graceful, thin blade cutting beautiful clean slices with a single elegant, drawing stroke.
