The Tani Shirogami 2 Yanagiba 300mm is primarily intended as a sushi knife, though other raw or cooked boneless proteins can be sliced with it.

The most important aspect of this style and length of blade is to ensure that the fish is cut with a single and light action. This minimizes 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.

Shirogami #2 steel is used in the core construction of the blade with a hagane (or cladding) of soft carbon steel outside. This is hand forged in the ni-mai style of awase which enhances the strength and durability of the knife.

Of course like all three traditional Japanese kitchen knives, it is a single bevel design. So, as is the case with all single bevel knives, this one is only suitable for right-handed users. 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 Magnolia wood and Buffalo horn for the ferrule.
