Our Yoshihiro Single-Edged Inox Honyaki Yanagi is forged from a single piece of Aus-10 stainless steel and is complimented with a premium Octagonal Shaped magnolia wood handle that affixed with double ebony wood bolsters. It outclasses most other competitors in edge retention, toughness, and ease of sharpening.

The Yanagi is a long slicing knife designed to cut thin slices of fish for sushi and sashimi. The beauty of its elegant thin blade is in its ability to slice through ingredients in long uninterrupted strokes, preserving their integrity and freshness. The Yanagi is one of the most essential of traditional Japanese knives and is a powerful component in the repertoire of many chefs.

Yoshihiro Inox Honyaki Stainless Steel Knife is at the vanguard of Japanese cutlery, representing the highest level of craftsmanship. Honyaki means "true forged" and is the purest reflection of the traditional art of Japanese sword making. A single piece of Inox AUS-10 Steel (HRC 62-63) is heated in hearths that reach temperatures in the thousands and quenched in cool water for hardness and durability. Polished with a brilliant mirror finish, the Inox AUS-10 Honyaki knives offer the best of both worlds combining ancient Japanese sword making techniques with modern metallurgy. Composed of advanced high carbon stainless steel, AUS-10 knives provide peace of mind in high paced environments.

Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. For maintenance info and professional Japanese knife sharpening contact our Yoshihiro Cutlery store.
