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.


"Ginryu" is the top of our stainless steel model that is made entirely with Swedish steel and each knife is finished by master sharpener in the traditional Japanese style. The forging method is very similar to the Japanese sword as the blade can carry a razor sharp edge. It can be used widely from home to professional. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
