Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Hon Kasumi Series Gingami No.3 Yanagiba (240m to 300mm, 3 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


Our Japanese traditional-style Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan knives are hand forged and hand sharpened by our team of top-ranking forge-smiths, sharpeners and craftsmen in Sakai City, Osaka. We have confidence that these knives will be well received because of the following advantages:

  1. The level of craftsmanship offered by our special team of artisans:
  • Because our team of craftsmen pay extra attention during the production of the knife, especially during ‘fit and finishing’, the knives have an excellent level of overall quality and are aesthetically beautiful.
  • No compromises are made during the finishing and fitting of the blade and handle. Particular attention is paid to the spine, the finger choil / heel, and the gap between the blade tang and the handle (The “Machi”). This extra work is not just important for the overall appearance of the knife; it also allows a more comfortable grip and provides a more secure handle. As a result, these knives are perfect for customers who care about both the aesthetic appearance and the functionality of their knives.
  1. We have a direct relationship with our team of top-ranking craftsmen in Sakai:
  • This allows us to offer you the very highest quality knives at especially low prices.
  • This allows us to offer you a wide range of traditional Japanese Hon Kasumi(“True Mist”, or “True Haze”) style knives, in both Blue No. 2 high carbon steel and Gingami No. 3 stainless steel.

A cutting edge of high carbon Hitachi Gingami No.3 that is welded forged with soft stainless steel for increased toughness and ease of re-sharpening.

Gingami No.3 is a high-grade Japanese stainless cutlery steel for the cutting performance and edge retention similar to high carbon steels, but improved resistance to corrosion.

This knife comes with a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle with black water buffalo horn ferrule / bolster, and includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (“Sheath”) -with black pakkawood saya pin- for safekeeping.

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.

 Japanese Traditional Style “Wa-Bocho” knives generally come with Single bevel edge for right handed use (the opposite side of blade is ground flat with slightly concaved shape). The reverse grinding left handed version is also available at 50% extra of regular price. (Sorry for much extra! Due to a small demand for the left handed version in Japan, it is costly to run a special small production from the beginning step). We try to keep the left handed versions in stock, but once sold out, it may take 60 to 90 days for delivery. Please contact us first for the availability at email.

We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for long time. 

Important

This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition. 

  • Before starting to use the knife, please wash it with water for cleaning up.
  • Please do not put this knife in the dishwasher, please hand wash.
  • Please do not leave this knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash it and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. (Includes bolster and handle part)
  • 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, hard foods such as lobster and crab which have hard surface.
  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

    First yanagiba

    I Am only 16 and I'm on my way to becoming a shushi chef (hopefully) and so far I don't think any of the other knives I was looking at buying for my first would have compared. It is able to hold an edge through restaurant service (in a restaurant that is quite hectic) for several weeks. I am very impressed with how it feels in the hand I normally prefer a D shaped handle, however with the extra attention put into the machi it is the most comfortable yanagiba I've held. (Used to borrow before I got this one). Not as sharp as it could be out of the box but that was expected, but it on a stone and it's one **** of a knife.

    Review of left handed knife

    I am delighted with my new knife. I use it to cut up fish for sashimi and it is perfect. The bevel lets the cut pieces fall away easily from the blade.
