Tojiro Shirogami Yanagi 270mm. This Tojiro Shirogami 270mm Yanagi is ideal for those that are looking for a good quality knife at an excellent price. The 270mm yanagi is the most popular sizes for this style of knives. The blade is constructed with a core of White #2 steel (also called Shirogami and White Paper 2 steel) sandwiched between a softer iron outer layer. White #2 steel will take a screaming sharp edge and well. 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 water resistant resin ferrule.
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
great knife for the price,white steel has always been my favorite but it did need work on the stone OOTB but for the price great knife. PS in your video you killed that fish lol let the knife do the work. lol
Ootb was a bit of a mess,warped left side with an odd bevel for some reason. Handle was nicer then most tojiro itks. After a good bit of work getting the geometry right this really does cut fish very well. So to sum it up,for the price can you really beat it. Put in a days work and you have wonderful piece of white steel ready to go.
After sharpening this new knife the magic of white steel is obvious and makes me want another. I am pleased...
Very pleased with this knife. Better handle/fit than some of the other knives on the lower end of the price spectrum.
