Shun Pro 9-1/2-Inch Yanagiba Knife
Shun VG0005 Classic Pro Japanese Style Yanagiba 9-1/2" Etched Blade, PakkaWood Handle
A useful addition to any cutlery collection, this slicing knife by Shun features a narrow, tapered 9-1/2-inch blade with the traditional Japanese single-bevel edge and hollow-ground back. Use it for cleanly and effortlessly slicing through meat without any undue pressure required. Most often used for preparing sashimi, or sliced raw fish, the knife also works well for slicing honey baked ham, savory roasts, and other large cuts of meat.
Like other knives in the Shun Pro line, the knife features a marvelous graffiti-etched blade made of pure high-carbon VG10 steel, which holds a razor-sharp edge longer than other premium steels. The blade's acid-etched design is slightly different with each style of knife, while consistently and cleverly incorporating the Shun logo neatly into the overall arrangement for a distinct and professional look. The knife also comes equipped with a D-shaped PakkaWood handle for a comfortable, secure grip. Though dishwasher-safe, Shun recommends washing the knife by hand for best results. The knife measures 13-1/2 by 4/5 by 1-1/2 inches
