Achieving ultra-thin slices for sashimi and sushi is a breeze with our Wasabi Black 9-Inch Yanagiba Knife. Our Wasabi line of knives feature traditional Japanese blade styling, and our 9-inch Yanagiba knife is no exception. This Yanagiba Knife features unsurpassed cutting performance due to the Daido 1K6 high-carbon, stainless which maintains superior edge retention. To reduce food sticking, the blades are sharpened on a single side. Although it has a traditional blade-style, it is paired with a uniquely modern handle material, polypropylene blended with bamboo powder, and impregnated with an antibacterial agent for super clean food preparation.
