Jyosaku Yanagi Kiritsuki Knife with a 270mm blade.
This is a knife for right handed use.
These Sakai made sashimi knives are forged out of white paper (Shirogami ) carbon steel. It is a very traditional Japanese way of making knives.
Yamawaki Hamono was established in 1927 with a long history of making knives in the traditional Sakai way. Most knives are single bevel type.
The blade has nice polished edges and is a very usable knife for a professional environment.
The octagon shape handle is made from Magnolia Wood with a Buffalo Horn ferrule.
The unique Yanagi Kiritsuki tip gives more options for slicing and processing fish and seafood.
We recommend to clean and dry the knives after use and also use a bit of tsubaki oil to protect the blade.
