Sakai White #2 Yanagi 240mm

The Sakai White #2 Yanagiba 240mm is made in one of the most famous knife making regions in Japan. The city and surrounding area is full of small and medium sized blacksmith shops as well as other support facilities specializing in knife sharpening, handle making and finishing. It is a fascinating symbiosis of multiple small family run businesses that produce some of the finest blades in the world.

The Sakai White #2 Yanagiba 240mm is one result of this intriguing collaborative effort. It is fashioned from the ubiquitous White #2 steel which is hammer forged using the traditional san-mai cladding technique. The outer layer is a soft iron which aids with strength, durability and lightness. As with all yanagiba knives, it is single bevelled with a slightly concave back side.

The look is as traditional as it gets: simple, elegant and functional. The finish and aesthetic are likewise traditional and quite lovely. The upper blade face is slightly polished with the secondary face receiving a matte finish. This transitions into the visible inner core resulting in a knife of simple beauty. The finely engraved kanji script and traditional Ho wood handle, with buffalo horn ferrule, complete this great looking picture. The knife comes complete with a matching saya.
