The Kitaoka 270mm Yanagiba Blue #2 is perfect for most sushi and protein slicing in almost every environment. The blade is long enough for a one-movement pull cut, essential for preparing sushi where a sawing action would destroy the delicate flesh and result in an unattractive slice.

Kitaoka-san has been forging high-end kitchen blades for 30 years. Although a relative newcomer to the ancient art of blade and knife making, he has gained a first class reputation among his peers and professional chefs for his skills in forging and shaping wonderful blades in the traditional style.

Kitaoka only makes traditional Japanese knives. He has put all his time and effort into perfecting a few skills and knife styles rather than attempting to be a general practitioner of all blades and steels. The blade is fashioned from Hitachi Blue paper #2 steel. This popular alloy has extra chromium and tungsten added which differentiates it from its White #2 sibling. The blade is single beveled so the back side is almost flat with just a slight concave profile. This aids in food release and the ability to guide the blade through the soft flesh in a precise and single stroke action.

As of 4/6/2018 This lovely blade comes with a traditional Japanese Rosewood Octagonal handle with black Pakka wood ferrule.
