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.

  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade 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.

  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

Nice experience

I used to order Japanese knives in other website and it costed too much for shipping. I only paid 6 dollers for my new knife with excelent deal this time which is great. Delivery is also made quick. I haven’t use this knife much yet, but it’s really shape and easy to sharpen. Slightly heavy than I expected. I am happy with it so far.

Great Japanese knife

It’s really a very sharp and beautiful knife. It was a recommendation given by JCK taking in to account it would be my first knife of these type. I’ve used it for fish and also for barbecues and it’s perfect. Thanks
