The Yanagi knife has a long and very thin blade especially designed to prepare sashimi, sushi, sliced raw fish and seafood. The blade is purposely angled from one side and flat on the other. This allows sharper and more precision cutting and slicing from one side of the blade. Made in Japan.
The blade is constructed of a single piece of steel, with a unique convex edge for unsurpassed performance. Made of hollow handles which are then filled with sand to achieve the desired weight and deliver the perfect balance. Perfectly balanced knives provide optimal control. The blade is made of the finest stainless steel called CROMOVA 18 (Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium), designed exclusively for GLOBAL. Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56 - C58 degrees which holds the razor-sharp edge of the blade longer than any other steel. Ergonomic, stainless steel hygienic handles with signature dimple pattern offer a comfortable, slip-resistant grip.
GLOBAL guarantees any stainless steel product that it sells to be free from defect in material, construction or workmanship under normal use and following the care instructions. This excludes damage caused by misuse or accident. The warranty extends only to the product’s original purchaser. Chips in the knife blades, broken knife tips, dis-coloration from food and rust spots are not covered. Knife chips and broken knife tips can often be repaired by re-sharpening.
