The Yoshihiro Inox Stainless Steel Yanagi Sashimi Japanese Knife is designed specifically for sashimi and sushi chefs. With its single-edged blade, this chef's knife, made of Inox AUS-8 Steel, thinly slices through the skin and flesh of a fish with ease and without compromising the taste and quality of the structure-unlike other knives which can damage the cell walls and alter the feel and taste. Traditional yanagi knives leave the fish smooth, shiny, and fresh. A hongasumi knife, this knife is a higher-quality kasumi knife-or a knife that was forged by layering softer steel over a hard steel core. The hard steel of the VG-10 allows for a superior sharpness and edge retention while the softer, surrounding steel adds durability.
Hand crafted in Japan with traditional techniques, the Yoshihiro Inox Yanagi Sashimi Japanese Knife has a completely flat ground on front (shinogi), and a concave ground (urasuki) with a flat rim (uraoshi) on the back. As traditional Japanese knives and cutlery value sharpness, the hardness of the Inox AUS-8 stainless steel lets these tradesmen create a thin, sharp cutting edge on the blade. With its handmade Shitan Octagon-shaped handle,with this knife is light and well balanced. This knife comes with a double bolster, and a lacquered magnolia wood saya cover, which is easy to clean and resistant to stain and odor.
