Kanemasa Pointed Sashimi Knife (Yanagiba), 9.5" Blade
This knife is hand-made by a small, well established (1917) factory for their professional customers. The steel is Yasugi Shiro-ku, a high carbon, sword steel preferred for daily use because it is easily re-sharpened to a very fine edge. This is laminated during forging to a "mild" (more rigid) steel for strength, then polished and super sharpened. As with all carbon steel knives, this will rust if not treated properly. The handles are made from "Ho" wood, a variety unique to Japan which is light and very water resistant. The ferrules are buffalo horn.
• 9.5" blade.
• Thin blade for fine slicing.
• "Ho" wood handles.
• Yasugi Shiro-ku (high carbon) steel.
• Also available Wooden Saya cover.
