Yoshihiro Gin-San Yanagi-Kiritsuke, Mirror Finish

30cm

Kiritsuke translates to cut off and refers here to the leaf shaped tip. This Yoshihiro Yanagi-Kiritsuke has a beautiful Mirror polished finish, elegant Japanese Rosewood octagon handle with a Water Buffalo horn bolster affixed and White Oak Saya cover. Its long slender blade and single-bevel make for cutting sushi, sashimi and rolls effortless. Gin-san, also known as Ginsanko is a high performing stainless steel. Yoshihiro master blade-smiths use traditional forging methods mixed with modern techniques and strengthening elements of Carbon, Chromium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Sulfur and Silicon. The result is a knife that sharpens with ease and holds its edge. Extremely user friendly, Gin-San is a popular blade choice for single-bevel knives among all ranks of chefs.
