Yanagi Sashimi Knives Here is a sampling of our professional sashimi knives that we offer at Chef Knives To Go. Sashimi Knives are traditional style Japanese slicing knives that typically have a face sharpened edge, meaning they are sharpened mostly on one side for a much sharper cutting edge. Sashimi knives are used primarily by Sushi chefs to thinly slice fish but the knife is increasingly popular with western cooks for a multitude of tasks including roast carving.
There are a variety of different styles of Sashimi knives that have different blade designs. The most popular is the Yanagi or yanagiba. This style has a long slender blade, one sided edge and a pointed tip. Another popular style is the Tako which has a blunt end instead of a point and the end of the blade is sharpened like a Usuba knife.
