The 300mm Damascus Aogami Steel yanagi is one of the most popular sizes for this style of knives. The blade is constructed with a core of Blue #2 steel sandwiched between a softer iron outer layer. The Blue #2 core will take a screaming sharp edge and hold it for an exceptional length of time. These knives are traditionally single bevel and used primarily to slice raw fish, but many use these as standard slicing knives. The blade is attached to a Ho wood handle and buffalo horn ferrule.
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.

I like this knife a lot.. wonderful for slicing/sushi etc.
I just wish it held it’s damascus pattern more distinctly.
I love this knife. The Damascus blade is very nice. What I am concerned about is some minor staining that occurs when getting the knife near sushi rice. Even when wiping,the blade retained some minor staining from the vinegar in the sushi rice. Not a huge issue,but an annoyance.
