  • Sakai Takayuki Byakko Yanagiba 240mm

    About the Shape -Yanagibas are long, thin, single-bevel knives ground and sharpened on one side. Translating to “willow’s leaf,” they’re graceful and elegant like their name suggests. Yanagibas are commonly used for slicing sashimi, but can also be used for carving other meats like roast beef and prime rib.

    About Sakai Takayuki Byakko -The Byakko series are the perfect tool for high-caliber sushi chefs or those who simply demand the best. White carbon steel makes them blazingly sharp with excellent edge retention, but also a joy to sharpen. From the ebony and water buffalo horn handle to handmade saya, every detail has been carefully considered.

    Sakai Takayuki is well-known as the largest knife maker in Sakai. The company hosts a number of blacksmiths and craftsmen who work together to create a huge array of knives. Although the Sakai region traditionally specializes in single-bevel blades, Sakai Takayuki makes many different shapes.
