The Yanagiba knife is a Japanese kitchen knife with a long and thin blade used to prepare sashimi, sushi, sliced raw fish and seafood.
Kitchen knives made of iron have the best sharpness, as is already known, but the daily care is especially a tiring task. For this, Tojiro uses the molybdenum vanadium steel for blades used for scalpels, a corrosion-resistant and abrasion-resistant material and has a fracture toughness. You do not have to be nervous too much in using it. This is also suitable for workplaces where rust is not allowed such as supermarket or seafood processing factory. We would like to recommend as your first Japanese-style knife.
- Blade: molybdenum vanadium steel.
- Handle: oak wood.
- Collar: plastic.
- Made in Japan.
