Yoshihiro Hayate Inox Aus-8 Yanagi Sushi Sashimi Japanese Chef Knife Integrated Stainless HandleProduct Code: NINYA240MS
The Yoshihiro Inox Stainless Steel Yanagi Sashimi Japanese Knife is designed specifically for sashimi and sushi chefs. With its single-edged blade, this chef's knife, made of S-Inox AUS-8 Steel, thinly slices through the skin and flesh of a fish with ease and without compromising the taste and quality of the structure-unlike other knives which can damage the cell walls and alter the feel and taste. Traditional yanagi knives leave the fish smooth, shiny, and fresh. A hongasumi knife, this knife is a higher-quality kasumi knife-or a knife that was forged by layering softer steel over a hard steel core. The hard steel of the AUS-8 allows for a superior sharpness and edge retention while the softer, surrounding steel adds durability.
Forged from a single piece of high carbon Aus-8 stainless steel, this knife is complemented by an integrated hollow stainless steel handle that is molded for comfort and ribbed for safe grip. It is welded directly onto the blade to make for a durable, long lasting knife that is also easy to clean and sanitary.
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.
