About Suisin Suminagashi
The flowing pattern in hand-forged layered steel can be mesmerizing but the advantages of Suminagashi (sometimes called Damascus Steel) extend well beyond its beauty. To create these exquisite sashimi knives, craftsmen in Japan join carbon steel with soft iron in the kasumi method, then pound and fold the steel eight times on each side. This is a lengthy process, taking as long as needed to make eight kasumi knives, but the end result is a stunning 16-layer blade with the strength of a hongasumi knife. 
About Suisin 
Suisin knives are crafted from the heart. From the initial design to the finished product, knives are repeatedly put to test in professional kitchens before they are released to the public. These knives are the unique by-product of a collaboration between the craftsmen and chefs. Suisin craftsmen are constantly challenging themselves to find new ways to ensure long edge retention and easy maintenance. Their goal is to provide chefs worldwide with the quality and careful craftsmanship that will allow them the precision and control to effortlessly create beautiful food.
Purpose of Kensaki Yanagi
The yanagi is used to slice boneless fish fillets into sashimi and toppings for sushi. The graceful, long and thin blade is designed to cut slices in one drawing stroke, which applies minimal pressure on the flesh of the fish to avoid stress and cell destruction. Different cutting techniques are used with the yanagi to enhance the aesthetics and the flavors of the fish. There are several variations of fish slicers that are all used in different situations and regions, however the yanagi style is the most widely used. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region.
