Product Info

The Wasabi Black series of knives have a specially designed handle which fuses the hygienic properties of bamboo with the long-lasting qualities of polypropylene. The handle also hugs the blade, reducing the gaps and crevices that dirt can gather in.

The Yanagiba knife is traditionally used in Japan as a slicing knife. Its slim and long blade makes it suitable for wafer-thin cuts, which are typical in the preparation of sushi and sashimi.

  • Features traditional Japanese blade styling, where the blade is sharpened on a single side for superior cutting performance and to reduce food sticking
  • Made from high carbon stainless steel
  • Blade is bead-blasted to achieve a smooth finish and embellished with the Japanese characters for 'wasabi'
  • The blade is closely connected to the handle, not allowing dirt to settle in any gaps

KAI is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of premium level chef's knives, used by top-class professionals and ambitious hobby cooks. For over 100 years, KAI has pushed the boundaries of aesthetic design, technical innovation and outstanding quality, enjoying cult status in Japan. These amazing razor-sharp knives are created in Seki City, Japan’s 700-year-old centre for Samurai swords.

Part of the joy of owning this knife will be the sharpening, which i have not got to yet, but I can feel that it is a great knife and will take a great edge.
I still have to learn to use the single bevel blade but this is the genuine Sushi knife you see in the youtube videos and I like the feel of it and the solidity of its construction. Looking forward to many satisfied years and the exec Read more
