Traditional Japanese knife with a long and thin blade, which was originally used for cutting thin slices of raw fish - yes, sushi! Nowadays it can also be used for cutting large pieces of meat (especially for steaks) due to its long, thin blade. Typical Sashimi Bocho knives are between 240-360mm long and, according to some chefs, can be used for different kitchen tasks which require precision. Some of the distinguishing features of Sashimi Bocho knives are a Japanese handle and a chisel ground blade with an extremely small angle. Most famous Sashimi Bocho named Yanagiba. The expression “yanagiba” in Japan means “a willow”, as the blade of the knife resembles a willow leaf.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.

Very sharp out of the box. Fits my hand well. I find it is nimble to use, and good for precision cuts and detailed work. A remarkably well made and beautiful knife for the price. It should last a lifetime of kitchen duties. Musashi offers many great quality knives, and this little beauty is one of them. Recommended

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
