Kitaoka Damascus Yanagiba 300mm White #1

The Kitaoka Damascus Yanagiba is made entirely by hand. It is forged by Hideo Kitaoka in his small workshop in Takefu Village.

Shirogami #1 steel is used in the core construction of the blade with a multilayer hagane (or cladding) of soft carbon steel outside. This is forged into a beautiful Damascus pattern which enhances the strength and durability of the knife. It is a single handed design, as is the case with all single bevel knives, this one being suitable for right-handed users only. Like all similar constructions, the carbon blade requires care with cleaning and drying to reduce the chances of corrosion and discoloration. The beautiful slim blade is complimented by a traditional octagonal handle made from rosewood and black Pakka wood for the ferule.

Of course this is primarily intended as a sushi knife, though other raw or cooked boneless proteins can be sliced with it. The most important aspect of which is to ensure that the fish is cut with a single and light action,thus minimizing the damage caused to the cellular structure of the ingredient which would result from the use of a rough sawing action. The added length of the 300mm blade makes this task easier than with a shorter variety. Of course you do need some serious board space to utilize its full size.

The Kitaoka Damascus Yanagiba is a very fine sushi knife that is easy to recommended to any home or professional chef in search of a superbly crafted and gorgeous looking Japanese slicing knife.
