Product Description

All Unshu Yukimitsu Hamono blades are beautifully finished and this 215mm (7½ inch) yanagiba is no exception. 

Overseas readers may be surprised at just how how common short sashimi knives are in Japan. For older generations it's an odd kitchen that doesn't have a yanagiba and of course they're not all as long as your arm. A short sashimi knife like this one is versatile, easy to handle, not nearly as scary as a long yanagiba and far easier to clean, store and sharpen. So when it comes to sashimi knives and someone tells you 'the longer the better', take the advice with a grain of salt. Or a drop of soy sauce. 

The history of this maker reaches back to the late Edo era. Unshu Yukimitsu Hamono started as a family concern producing edge tools in the mid 1830's in what was once Izumo Province, the heartland of Japanese steel culture. The Kusunoki family still lives there, and after more than twenty-six years full-time at the family forge chief craftsman Kiyonori Kusunoki takes great pride in his work. It very much shows in this knife.
