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.

PLEASE NOTE: This knife is a single bevel blade and designed for right handed individuals.

This knife maker is Sawakazuma from Echizen city, Fukui which is located along the Sea of Japan. Echizen knives have a long history, dating back 700 years. While Japanese knives as a whole are typically designed with thinner blades than their European counterparts, the knives coming from Echizen take that a step further and are even narrower.

*Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
