Yanagiba which literally means Willow Leaf. While Eastern Japan, the Tokyo region, uses the name "Yanagiba" for this style of knife, to the west in the Osaka and Kyoto regions, these knives are known as the Shobu. The shape is a slim blade which looks like a Katana (sword), suitable for slicing tasks. The style of knife is well known as a great sashimi knife, with a single bevel edge good for cutting and filleting fish. Its pointed and easy to use, it is possible to cut beautiful sashimi just by pulling in a single motion without moving the kitchen knife back and forth.
This is a Sakai Takayuki Western style chef knife series that is resistant to rust. The blade has a hammer eye pattern full and is a fascinating chef knife that features a beautiful ripple that can be used widely from home to professional.
The Yanagiba style blade is used for cutting large pieces of fish or meat in a single slice and sashimi. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
