This Tojiro Shirogami 270mm Yanagiba is ideal for those who are looking for a good quality knife at an excellent price. The 270mm yanagi is the most popular size for this style of knife. The blade is constructed with a core of White #2 steel (also called Shirogami and White Paper 2 steel) sandwiched between a softer iron outer layer. White #2 steel will take a screaming sharp edge and well. These knives are traditionally single bevel and used primarily to slice raw fish, but many use these as standard slicing knives. The blade is attached to a ho wood handle and water resistant resin ferrule.

  • Weight: 6.0 ounces
  • Blade Length: 258 mm
  • Total Length: 415 mm
  • Spine Thickness at Base: 3.2 mm
  • Blade Height: 34.2 mm

    Sharp right out the box! Thin blade and pretty light weight over all balanced well.

    5  Paying for the blade, January 21, 2019
    Posted By: Thomas Craney

    Wa Handle: There is a step down to the plastic Ferulle which I found annoying. I sanded the Handle smooth to eliminate the step stained and varnished it to greatly improve the feel.
    Blade: From the Shinogi line to edge bevel the steel in unfinished. It will take quite a bit of time on a 400 grit stone to flatten it smooth. The Ura backside hollow grind is fine as it is.
    The white #2 steel blade sharpens very well but will need a micro bevel to prevent chipping.

    After ordering the Tojiro petty knife and really liking it for the price, I knew I wanted to get the Yanagi... because I always wanted one but was afraid to spend too much since I have not sharpened single bevel in the past and since it also would only get rare use. Knife came, looks much nicer than the petty did. Handle feels smooth and looks good, blade is straight and sharp from heel to tip, no touch up needed out of the box like I expected from some other reviews. I think I'll really enjoy learning on this knife and it was a great price for a starter Yanagi.

    I have to give 4 stars because it did need a bit of work out of the box but when paying $90 for a white #2 steel I think it should be expected. Mine came razor sharp but slight issues at the heel and roughly mid blade so I actually took it to a 320 stone to straighten it up. No problems at all took it to a 10k shapton glass and the white #2 just gets so sharp. Handle needed some sanding but it's a 15 minute job. Awesome knife for $90!

    The initial bevel is a little strange. It takes a few hours of work on a whetstone to get this knife into proper working order but once you do it's a very good knife.

    Very pleased with this knife. Better handle/fit than some of the other knives on the lower end of the price spectrum.

    Ootb was a bit of a mess, warped left side with an odd bevel for some reason. Handle was nicer then most tojiro itks. After a good bit of work getting the geometry right this really does cut fish very well. So to sum it up, for the price can you really beat it. Put in a days work and you have wonderful piece of white steel ready to go.
