Yanagiba Left Hand White steel #2 Kasumi Buffalo Magnolia Handle 240mm


Regular price¥39,800

Unlock your culinary potential with the exquisite Yanagiba Left Hand White Steel #2 Kasumi Knife. The 240mm blade offers the ideal balance of strength and flexibility, crafted from White steel #2 and finished with a beautiful Kasumi finish. The handle is crafted from Buffalo Magnolia wood for an elegant, tactile feel in the hand. Add a luxurious, professional touch to every slice and chop with this sophisticated knife.

The Yanagi is a long slicing knife that was designed to slice thin slices of fish for sushi and sashimi. The beauty of its elegant thin blade is its ability to slice through an ingredient in long uninterrupted strokes, preserving its integrity and freshness. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.

Shirogami No.2 has minimal impurities and a very fine grain structure, so it is ideal for fine cutting tools such as Japanese traditional-style knives. Despite being a ‘simple’ carbon steel, Shirogami No.2 has very good edge retention and it is also very easy to re-sharpen. Recommended for first-time users of Japanese traditional-style knives.

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.

Good stuff


Sashimi knife

I bought this knife during my trip in japan and I’m very pleased with it.
Extremely sharp and lightweight it cuts effortlessly fish.
The octogonal handle feels very comfortable to me, better than a D shape.
Of course as the blade is made from Carbon Steel it needs a little care to avoid staining.
Overall an excellent knife for the ones who wants to make sashimi at home

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.


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.


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.


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.
