While we are not sure why these knives are called Yanagibas, as opposed to Sujihikis, given the 50/50 grind and edge bevel, we are sure that performance of these slicers wonít disappoint. Shosui Takeda hand crafts his iconic knives from a small workshop in Niimi. Striking a wonderful balance between stainless ease of maintenance and carbon steelís refined grain structure/high hardness, Takedaís AS Stainless Clad series of knives offers up an expertly treated core of Aogami Super wrapped in softer stainless steel. These knives take an incredibly acute edge and exhibit excellent retention and durability.
This Yanagi/Suji has a 50/50 compound grind with an exceptionally tall edge bevel which makes it incredibly easy to hit the right angle while sharpening. The unique aesthetic character of Mr. Takedaís knives is highlighted by a beautiful Kurouchi finish and well done rosewood handles. Highly regarded by knife enthusiasts, the light and thin blade on this slicer will make it exceptionally versatile and easy to wield and is a great option for those working with smaller proteins or cooks that would like a Sujihiki that can pull double duty as a fillet knife.

    5  Its a Takeda!, January 16, 2018
    Posted By: Justin - verified customer

    This knife is almost exactly as expected. It is sharp and easy to maintain. It looks and feels great. Using it is very enjoyable. If you have used a Takeda before, you know what to expect. The only thing that surprised me was how thin it was. Considering how some Takeda are so oversized, this is not at all. It is very thin and nimble. Amazing knife.
