Product information

This Gohumanosuke Yoshiro Yangi is crafted from Yasuki White #2 high-Carbon steel. A Yanagi's long slender blade and single-bevel make for cutting sushi, sashimi and rolls effortless. White #2, also known as Shiroko is a high performing steel that is hard, and very responsive to smoother grit sharpening stones. Yoshihiro master blade-smiths use a traditional forging method of Kasumiyaki. The result is a knife that sharpens with ease and holds its edge. Extremely user friendly, Shiroko is a popular blade choice for single-bevel knives among all ranks of chefs.


NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
