Tanaka Kasumi Sashimi 240mm

Tanaka Kasumi knives are made by master bladesmith Shigeki Tanaka. He succeeded his illustrious father, Kazuyuki Tanaka, and now runs the famed shop with a small group of craftsmen dedicated to producing fine Japanese blades at very reasonable prices.

They make their knives from a variety of steels. This grouping is made from the very popular Blue Paper #2 carbon steel which they harden to 60+ HRC. The core steel is covered with a softer steel to add strength and lightness.

The sashimi featured here is a single-sided blade, so it is only good for right-handed users. It is a great choice for home cooks looking to get into the world of sushi at a reasonable price. It also makes a perfect daily blade for line cooks and aspiring sushi chefs. Please be warned, as with any carbon knives, it will discolor and rust very quickly unless care is taken in the cleaning and drying of the blade.

One of the outstanding attributes of Tanaka blades is their grinds. Add to that the wonderful ability of Aogami #2 to take a screaming sharp edge, and you have a knife that can hold its own in most home and professional situations--all at a really nice price.

I wanted a shorter yanagi to use at the office - yes, it's true, I have a full-size cutting board and prepare fresh snacks at the office - and based on my experience with the Tanaka petty knife, I chose to buy a short Tanaka kasumi yanagi for its great blend of performance, economy, and sheer pleasure to use.
