Global Classic Yanagi Sashimi Knife

Made to the exacting standards of Japanese professional chefs, Global's award-winning knives are an excellent choice for the discerning home cook. Earning top accolades from sushi chefs, this knife has a long, rigid single bevel blade that makes it easy to cut thin, uniform slices of raw fish for sushi or sashimi. Blade is made of exceptionally hard Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion. Prominent 1/4" edge is visible to the naked eye and ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in impressive sharpness and edge retention. Stainless-steel handle is seamlessly constructed and textured for a good grip. Crafted to professional standards, this knife is lightweight yet perfectly balanced. As is customary for traditional Japanese cutlery, the single bevel on one side of the blade makes this knife useful for right-handed use only. 10" long blade. Made in Japan.

Brought this a couple of years ago and its a beauty. The handle is perfect engineered for pulling through the cut. The narrowing of the handle near the blade allows you to anchor your index finger for an easy draw motion. The singled-sided edge is great for slicing fish, much better than a double-sided edge.
