Yanagiba: the ultimate sashimi knife
The Yanagiba is a long Japanese kitchen knife that is used to cut sashimi. It is sometimes also called a type of kitchen katana, like the famous Japanese swords. After all, a Yanagiba has a long blade you can use to cut through a piece of meat or fish in one go. As such you prevent a sawing motion and end up with the best results. For anyone who loves sushi this is definitely a true must-have. Amazing when you want to cut through maki-rolls in one go and for cutting sashimi for on Nigiri. You can also use the Yanagiba to cut thin slices of smoked ham or carpaccio.
