These traditional style Japanese knives are hand forged with Swedish inox steel. They have the sharpness and kirenaga of a traditional honyaki knife. The Inox blades do not absorb food odors and have strong rust-resistant properties. The blades are well balanced, hand finished, and have a steel density that makes for easier sharpening. The octagonal wood handle fits comfortably into the user's hand.

Purpose of 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.

No left-handed knives are available for this size.
