This is the longest version that we stock in the Kitaoka Black Damascus line of sushi knives. It is the ultimate size for serious sushi chefs with board space and the skills required to use this fine instrument. The slender long blade of a yanagiba is intended to cut slices in a single drawing stroke. It should require a minimal amount of pressure to achieve the slice, which therefore avoids cell destruction to the fish. Expert sushi chefs can actually employ different cutting techniques to enhance the aesthetics and flavors of each type of fish, but it takes a knife of this caliber to achieve these goals.

VG-10 is the alloy of choice for the core construction of the blade. It has a multilayer hagane (or cladding) of softer stainless steel which protects the inner core. Kitaoka-san forges this steel into a beautiful damascus pattern, which enhances the strength and durability of the knife. One of Kitaoka-sanís strengths is his ability to forge damascus and this knife is a testament to these skills. The grind of the blade is wonderfully executed as is the overall fit and finish. The simple yet elegant octagonal handle is made from rosewood and black pakka wood.
