Hattori's high mirror polished VG-10 Yanagiba. Its cutting edge core is made of VG-10 forge layered with soft stainless steel. Rust resistance, high cutting performance, and excellent quality. Perfect quality, excellent fit&finish... This is the ultimate masterpiece that can be made by only the finest craftsman.
Yanagiba knife is 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.
