The Yanagiba of Yamato have a double-edged blade that make cutting easy either left handed and right handed.
Another feature of YAMATO series is hammered marks that prevent food sticking to the blade.
Blacksmiths of SEKI city show their skills in sharpening blades. They sandwich the highly hardness molybdenum-vanadium promising long lasting sharp edge with the low-carbon stainless steel resisting against rust.
The Yanagiba is traditionally used to slice boneless fish fillets for Sashimi and Sushi dishes. Can also be used to fillet small to medium-sized fish and often used for skinning fish. The long narrow blade and relatively acute edge angle greatly reduce the required effort to cut through ingredients.
