GOKOO SASHIMI KNIFE FOR LEFT HAND  STINLESS STEEL 270MM
Left hand Yanagiba sashimi knife from Gokoo

This traditional shape of single bevel sashimi knife is called Yanagiba ( means Willow leaf blade ) and it has a large face of convex edge on one side and a hollow ground ( concave )the other flat side.
This unique shape is the secret for the sharpness of Japanese knife as the hollow side helps flow over the ingredient while the edged side push away and separate the ingredient.
 
This knife is perfect for slicing sashimi of Tuna, Salmon, Kingfish or making Carpaccio and by slicing ingredients with a right sharp knife, it holds the freshness.
 
The core blade is Japanese Gold stainless steel forged with 8 Chrome-Vanadium stainless steel for easy maintenance.
Each blade displays a unique wavy line called Kasumi from forging 2 different type of metals together.
 
The D shaped handle is also handcrafted from Ho-wood ( Japanese big leaf Magnolia ) capped with Water Buffalo horn bolster.
Ho-wood is very light and increases grips when wet.
 
 
This knife is handcrafted with love, pride and maybe some scratches from the knife master.
Size, weight and colour of bolster may slightly differ from knife to knife and the maker's mark in some knives are thin.
Each knife is hand-sharpened prior to shipping for full performance.
 
The small gap or space between the top of handle and bottom of the blade is called Machi.
Please note that Machi is used to adjust the depth of the blade to the handle and is not a defect.
 
This knife is for left hander and the measurement for Sashimi knife is from tip of the knife to the top of handle, not the heel of the blade.
