Kikuichi Kasumi 8 in. (210mm) Yanagi

Our Price: $350.00


This 8.2 in. (210mm) Kasumi Series Yanagi from Kikuichi is a traditionally forged knife using a jacket steel (soft carbon) and premium (White #2) cutting steel mimicking old school sword making techniques. This is a high carbon steel knife meaning it has the best ability to take and hold an edge but can be susceptible to rust if not dried after use. The Yanagiba is used in Japanese cooking to preform tasks like cutting thin strips of fish or beef, or making decorative cuts with greens for garnishing. This knife is single beveled with a concave backside so it should be sharpened by hand using a whetstone for the best results. Comes with a fitted Saya and pin.

  • Handle: Wa style Ho wood with Buffalo Horn Ferrule.
  • Blade Steel: White #2
  • Made In: Japan
