Fujiwara Kanefusa FKJ Series Yanagiba (180mm to 300mm, 5 sizes)

Fujiwara Kanefusa

Availability: Normally ships the same day



Fujiwara Kanefusa FKV Series knife features a cutting edge of V Gold stainless steel (HRc. 60), which is forge-welded with a soft stainless steel. This means that you can enjoy the fine cutting performance of a Japanese traditional-style knife whilst benefitting from the rust-resistance, edge sharpness and edge retention offered by a modern stainless steel.

Fujiwara FKV Series knife has D-shaped handle that is made from magnolia wood and a water buffalo horn ferrule.

"Fujiwara Kanefusa" is engraved in to the blade in Japanese Kanji.

From novice users to Pro Sushi Chefs, the high quality Fujiwara FKV Series of stainless steel Japanese traditional-style knives are thoroughly recommended.

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.

Important

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.
