This is the special order made Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Limited Model, VG-10 "SABER" Yanagiba 300mm and available with limited quantity.
VG-10 blade has strong corrosion-resistance and can provide very good edge sharpness and edge retention.
This knife comes with a comfortable octagonal Ebony wood handle with black water buffalo horn ferrule / bolster.
This Special Order Made "SABER" Yanagiba blade design was inspired by the Western Saber sword (Also known as a Sabre, Säbel, or Szabla). Available now, this special Single Bevel Edge Slicer allows you to enjoy both the famous cutting ability of the traditional single bevel edged Yanagiba and the classic style of the Western Saber.
As with the Sujihiki, the long blade of the Yanagiba 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 results 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 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.
