Yanagiba - Slicer Sushi Sashimi Knife
Yanagi ba or shortly Yanagi is a long and very thin knife used in the Japanese kitchen, belonging to the group of Sashimi Knife. In preparing sashimi and sushi, there are very important conditions that the sliced cross section be smooth, shiny and sharp in a microscopic view. Those conditions cannot be met by other usual knives. Yanagi-ba-bocho is especially designed to satisfy the conditions.
