Yoshihiro Blue #1 Suminagashi Yanagi with Double Grooves
Handle: Ebony wood with buffalo horn ferrule
This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.
Crafted by Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, the knife combines Sakai's 600 years of forging tradition with the ancient art of Damascus folding to create the high-grade "Suminagashi" series.
This series features a core steel made from the hardest and sharpest Aogami #1 steel in the blue steel family, cladded with layers of Damascus folding steel, forged with the dual-layered technique.
The sharp Aogami #1 steel Yanagiba is ideal for cutting sashimi with remarkable efficiency. The high hardness, thinness, and delicacy of the blade require a meticulous approach, aligning perfectly with the characteristics of premium ingredients.
A skilled chef can adeptly and quickly master the blade, effortlessly and gently cutting through the ingredients without damaging their fibers—a mastery that requires an equally exceptional tool.
The knives in this series offer excellent cutting performance, long-lasting sharpness, and aesthetic appeal. The handle is crafted from water-resistant Ebony wood.
