The “Yanagi Sashimi” is a slicing knife used to cut boneless fish fillets into sashimi and sushi toppings. The long, thin, single-bevel blade cuts through fish in one long, drawing stroke that leaves little to no tearing and bruising. The slip-resistant wooden handle provides a comfortable grip during use. Cutting bones with this knife isn't recommended as the edge may chip. It is best to wash by hand and thoroughly dry these knives after use. Originated in the Kansai (Osaka) region.
