Tadafusa Hocho Kobo HK-7 Yanagiba 210mm

About the Shape - The Yanagiba is a slicer’s dream. Graceful, sexy, and capable of amazing sharpness, you’ll find a Yanigiba in the hands of every sushi chef worth their salt. Yanagi means “willow leaf” and refers to this knife’s long, narrow shape. The Yanagiba is a traditional Japanese blade that is only sharpened on one side. This is called “single bevel.” Traditionally used for slicing sashimi, they are equally at home with a roast beef, ham, or calf’s liver. Once you go Yanagiba, you’ll never go back.

About Tadafusa: Sone-san has learned from the past—his grandfather, Torasaburo Sone-san, founded Tadafusa in Sanjo way back in 1948. Sanjo has been a blacksmithing epicentre for several hundred years, and it’s also home to some of the most well respected Sake distilleries and winter sports resorts. Unsurprisingly, Sone-san has a very strong sense of civic pride. He’s dedicated to keep all of their production in Sanjo to help create employment opportunities locally. This extends not just to his generation, Sone-san wants Tadafusa to stay in Sanjo so the next generation can inherit this tradition and improve upon their craft. 
As president and head-blacksmith, Sone-san has a team of highly trained blacksmiths that can churn out affordable hand-forged blades without ever compromising on quality.
