Yanagiba Blue steel #2 Kasumi Walnut Handle 240mm

H076

Regular price¥29,800
/

Used to cut raw seafood and beef into thin slices for Sashimi, etc. Often used in Sushi restaurants. It has a long blade on only one side, keeping the food beautifully cut and fresh.

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.

Traditional Kasumi polished finish. Kasumi roughly translated to “mist” or “cloud” and refers to the hazy appearance of the soft steel/iron cladding, in contrast to the fine polished cutting edge. This elegant finish is very common on traditional style Japanese blades.

Un magnifique couteau

Tout à été parfait. Livraison dans les temps, couteau d'excellente qualité.
Petit bémol pour les frais de douanes qui n'étaient pas précisés à la commande.
Mais l'attention portée à l'emballage et la qualité générale vallent largement 5 étoiles
Merci

My new favorite knife

the knife come pretty sharp out of the box and with very few low spots when sharpening. surprisingly easy to sharpen too. I love the design of the knife and how the choil is polished, the handle has an ebony ferrule instead of buffalo horn but looks really nice, there is a slight transition at the ferrule though. Over all its a great knife that looks great and performs very well. I would 100% recommend this knife to anyone but Aogami 2 take some experience to sharpen well.

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.
