Yanagiba Blue steel #2 Suminagashi Buffalo Ebony Handle 270mm

H217

Regular price¥73,800
/

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.

Suminagashi translates as floating ink and refers to the beautiful marbled wave-like patterns that extend through the blade from the tip to the heel, unveiling a new mosaic with every sharpening.

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.
