This 10 inch Forged Japanese Sashimi knife style is a great example of traditional Japanese cutlery. This is because of the overall blade and edge design.
Japanese blades are traditionally made with a single edge bevel. This makes them extremely good for cutting but only allows for them to be used with the hand that matches the beveled side, which is usually the right hand.
This style of knife features an additional concave grind on the “inner” side of the blade which makes the blade edge narrower and sharper. This helps with cutting, especially when you are dealing with fish. There is less resistance to the fine edge, creating clean, smooth cuts. These types of Sashimi knives are usually associated with sushi or other fish processing tasks.
The blade is made from X7Cr17MoV Forged Steel and hardened to 56-60 on the Rockwell scale. This is the middle ground of edge hardness, but most of the cutting power comes from the edge design.
Additionally, the blade does not need to be extremely hard since these types of knives deal almost exclusively with fish which have less dense bones than red meats.
The handle is made from Ebony wood and has Brass and G10 accents to offset the fine grained wood.
The 10 inch Forged blade is a Yanagiba knife style. This means it is long and narrow. Designed for preparing sushi for eating, the Yanagiba Sashimi knife benefits from single slices to help preserve the flavor of the meat.
Using a Yanagiba blade can take some practice, but if you are into traditional sushi techniques it is a necessary addition to your kitchen knives.
This Sashimi knife with its Yanagiba knife style blade, Will bring your sushi making skills to a new level. The Best Sashimi knife is the one in your kitchen!
