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:
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 and production is very very limited.)
It often requires very long delivery time (nearly 90 days). Please contact us first for the availability and delivery time 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.
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.
This is my third purchase of a Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan brand knife and it does not disappoint in any way. Impeccable fit & finish as usual. The blade is perfectly sharp straight out of the box with no edge touch-up needed. From Nagoya to New Jersey (USA) it took 4 days from time the order was place to package delivery in hand. That includes FedEx clearing customs (no customs duty required). Many thanks to Koki Iwahara & team.
it is fantastic for the price. it cuts really well and the edge stays sharp long. plus, it is easy to maintain
같은 가격대 다른 은삼강 보다 마감이나 제품은 정말 좋은거 같습니다! 추천 합니다! 한자루 더 구매 하고 싶네요! All prices are reasonable good price! The finish and product seem to be really good compared to other silver samgangs in the same price range! I recommend it! I want to buy one more bag!
I am a home chef and wanted to step up my game when preparing sushi and sashimi. One of the missing ingredients was this knife. The yanagiba is really a game changer and this knife works out perfectly for me. Cuts through fish effortlessly, easy to maintain and clean. Knife came quickly, well packaged with the saya. Some general instructions completed the package. Great service and high quality tool!
Steel is good easy to maintain fast shipping with no tax I would definitely oder again.
