Yanagiba 27 cm Shirogami 2 Misuzu - Ho-wood handle with buffalo horn ferrule
Yanagiba knife for the perfect preparation of sushi at home!
The Yanagiba or often called sushi or sashimi knife, is probably the secret king among Japanese knives. It is a knife specifically for the fine cutting and portioning of fish and Japanese kitchens can not be imagined without. The blade of this Yanagiba knife is 270mm long and allows you to cut fish fillets with just one pulling cut. This Sashimi knife is like almost all Yanagiba single-edged, the blade steel is made of classic Shirogami steel. The blade steel is coated with a low stainless steel alloy. This knife is an absolute highlight, the classic wooden handle fits perfectly to the overall work of art. The authentic Japanese wooden handle makes the knife look traditional and noble. It should be noted that the knife is ground on one side and is therefore not suitable for left-handers. The blade is handmade at Misuzu in Miki, Japan.

The center of gravity of the knife is towards the tip of the blade, which means that little force is required to work with it. Nevertheless, the blade should never be levered or twisted, as this could cause the very hard blade steel to break away.
