Hitohira FJ VG-1 Yanagiba 270mm Pakka Handle
This product is currently sold out.
What’s distinct about this knife is the finish of the ura-oshi edge. Exceptionally thin and close to the edge, it speaks to the high level of craftsmanship behind the making of this knife. For a knife of this price point, customers will be hard pressed to find a better finish on the single-bevel grind. Forged from VG-1 stainless steel, this durable blade is ideal for a first time yanagiba owner. The FJ line is known for consistently impressing customers with exceptional performance at an affordable price point.
A Yanagiba is a traditional Japanese fish slicing blade that is single-sided (bevelled), often simply referred to as a “sushi knife.” These slicers may not be as versatile as its double-sided cousin, Sujihiki, but when it comes to pure slicing tasks of boneless protein (and not just fish), a well-sharpened Yanagiba is unmatched in performance. It is a great addition for any cooks working with sashimi and other delicate, raw seafoods.
