The Kitaoka 240mm Yanagiba Blue #2 occupies the sweet spot in yanagiba lengths. Perfect for most sushi and protein slicing in almost every environment. The blade is long enough for a one movement pull cut. Essential for preparing sushi where a sawing action would destroy the delicate flesh and result in an unattractive slice.

Kitaoka only makes traditional Japanese knives. He has put all his time and effort into perfecting a few skills and knife styles rather than attempting to be a general practitioner of all blades and steels. His steel of choice is Aogami Blue #2. A high carbon alloy with added chromium and tungsten. These elements impart a toughness to the steel and aid in edge retention and overall durability. The alloy is hardened to 63-64 HRC. Of course the blade is going to be reactive so please make sure to thoroughly dry it after every use.

We can supply the knife with a selection of handles. A traditional Ho wood D shaped handle or a more contemporary rosewood construction in an octagonal shape. Your choice...our pleasure!
