Sukenari SG2 Yanagiba knife with a 270mm blade.
SG2 is a well established powder metal steel for making high end knives. It is a little bit easier to sharpen than the HAP-40 or ZDP189 steels.
The mirror polished blade is made with the SG2 steel core and finished with other stainless steel in the hon kasumi style. A beautiful and very useful sashimi knife and a solid performer.
Sukenari is a small maker from Toyama. Their work is extremely tidy and you can see the skills on any of their products.
The octagonal handles are made out Ichii wood with a buffalo horn ferrule.
