This Moritaka Yanagiba measures 270mm on the blade. Moritaka offers free re-sharpening service for each new knife. All you need to do is send the knife back along with return postage and they will put a professional edge back on your knife. Their knives are made with Aogami Super Steel and come with a Kurouchi finish which adds great aesthetic appeal along with an attractive yew octagonal handle, 50/50 edge grind and a stainless steel tang that helps keep oxidation and rust from forming inside the handle.
Please note this knife has a 50/50 bevel on the edge so it is not a traditional hollow backed yanagi. It is really more of a sujihiki.
