Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Kurouchi White Steel No.2 Series Yanagiba (D Shaped Red-Sandal Wood Handle with Black Pakka Wood Ferrules, 240mm to 300mm, 3 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


Very impressive and the unique Kurouchi (“Black-forged”) finish of the blade and its beautiful color gradation. The Kurouchi finished section of the blade (See Top-half) also has a unique Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) texture. It contrasts beautifully with the cloudy grey colored Kasumi (“True mist”) finished upper blade bevel and the shining silver of the polished cutting edge.

A cutting edge of high carbon Hitachi White Steel No.2 that is welded forged with soft iron for increased toughness and ease of re-sharpening. White Steel No.2 is a pure Japanese high carbon steel and popular carbon steel for high cutting performance and ease of re-sharpening.

We offer you a choice of two different types of handle:

  • A traditional ‘D-shaped’ handle in magnolia wood with a water buffalo horn ferrule
  • ‘D-shaped’ handle in dark-red sandalwood with a black pakkawood ferrule that nicely complements the Kurouchi blade.

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.

  • 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.

my second purchase from here

After bought my two Fujiwara Kanefusa here i decided buy one Yanagiba. I chose the Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Kurouchi White Steel No.2 Series Yanagiba (D Shaped Red-Sandal Wood Handle with Black Pakka Wood Ferrules, 240mm. I loved the finish of that knife. The blade patina. I expected a lighter knife, but as I used German knives before, the weight of this knife didn't bother me so much.

First experience: a traditional Japanese knife

This is my ninth knife from this site, but the first Japanese traditional one. Purchased for cutting fish and slicing meat. Fine and sharp, requires careful care, in order to avoid rust. I rarely use, many other knives, but I have the pleasure to work with it sometimes .perfect slicing and remains sharp for a long time. Thank you!
