Yanagiba White steel #2 Polished Ichii Buffalo Handle 240mm

Regular price¥25,800
/

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.

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.

Migaki (Polished) line of knives feature beautiful edge geometry and are quite thin behind the edge and at the spine. They have an excellent cutting feel and are light and feel very nimble and comfortable in the hand.

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.
