Hitohira Tanaka Mosuke Blue #1 Kiritsuke Yanagiba 270mm Ebony Handle (Mirror Polished/ Saya)

$680.00

Yoshikazu Tanaka-san is a blacksmith from Sakai renown for his mastery of carbon steel knife forging. In particular, he is known for his Blue #1 steel, which has the high hardness point without the accompanying difficulty in sharpening, according to professional sharpeners working with his blades in Sakai. Tosho fans may already know of Tanaka-san’s work from Konosuke’s coveted Fujiyama series. Despite Tanaka-san’s advanced age and propensity to work with iron cladded knives, he still challenges himself by experimenting with new materials.

A Kiritsuke Yanagiba is a Japanese fish-slicing blade with a slanted tip from a traditional single-sided blade called a Kiritsuke. This is single-sided/beveled, and 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 (not just fish), a well-sharpened Yanagiba is unmatched in performance. It is a great addition for any cook.
