Kanetsugu Hybrid Wa Bocho Series Yanagiba (210mm to 270mm, 3 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

“Stylish” and “Practical” were the design concepts behind these sensational new Kanetsugu Hyrbrid Wa Bocho knives. Each blade is a solid piece of rust-resistant High Carbon Molybdenum Vanadium Stainless Steel (HRc. 57) and their stylish handles use modern materials and technology to ensure that they provide a secure and comfortable grip, are easy to maintain and are durable. Recommended for Home Sushi Chefs and first-time buyers of Japanese Traditional-style knives.

Yanagiba knives are primarily used to slice boneless fish fillets for Sashimi and Sushi dishes, but they can also be used to fillet small to medium-sized fish and are often used for skinning fish. The narrow blade and relatively acute edge angle of the Yanagiba are features which greatly reduce the effort required to cut through ingredients. As with the Sujihiki, the long blade allows the fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip. 

The combination of cutting technique, acute blade angle, and sharp edge result in very little cellular damage in the cut surface. This is particularly important for dishes where the fish is eaten raw, because it helps to preserve the original flavor and texture of the fish.

Sorry. This knife is not available for left handed version.

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times. 


This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

      Best of the best!

      I had bought the smallest version of this knife and love it. So naturally getting the larger version was the best way to go. It has good weight, keeps sharp for a long time and it's easy to sharpen it. Overall a great product. Would buy again.

      Kenetsugu is SHARP. As a prior sushi chef in practice and an intermediate cook, the price and performance for this item for (starting or expert) chef is Phenomenal. I filet'd a salmon with ease, and honestly when someone says something cuts like butter, its not the food but the knife and to be honest, this feels like your'e cutting through air (with control). For any starting sushi chefs or cooks experimenting with fish, I highly recommend this knife.

      Unique yanagi knife

      Unique handle (love it heptagonal handle). Easy to sharp. May not sharp like a blue steel but good enough for every day use and very easy to maintain.

      Love this knife! I bought it as a gift for my husband specifically to prep fish. It slices and cuts with precision and the handle is nicely balanced. I would definitely recommend this knife. Shipping was fast too!
