Yanagi-Sashimi Knife 270mm (10.3") #F-1021

| /

A Yanagiba slips through food effortlessly and its incredible sharpness means you never struggle. The yanagiba is a gateway knife for people wanting to get into single bevels and learn some new tricks. When slicing meat or fish, this blade will naturally want to pull to the left on a right-handed knife. (the opposite is true for a lefty.) As the driver of the blade, you must take control and tell it where to go. That may sound tricky, but you will get the hang of it after a few slices. Still, it can take years to master this knife.

The Tojiro Aogami Damascus Series is the crown jewel in their knife range as its made with Aogami and the soft iron cladding has a damascus finish, this range is specifically designed for working with fish and some meats. They are weighted and heavy to keep edge retention as well as provide a knife for life that can be sharpened over and over again. They are a master piece and show the history of knife making that Tojiro has to offer.
