Shun – Pro Sho Yanagiba Knife 24.1cm
In Japanese, “Yanagiba” means “willow blade” and the yanagiba is, quite simply, an ideal slicing knife.
Designed to be pulled gently through the food, this precise, single-bevel blade reduces loss of the natural juices and creates the cleanest cuts imaginable.
It is the tool of choice for slicing raw fish for sashimi and it is often used for slicing sushi rolls.
The Shun Classic Pro 24.1cm Yanagiba has a long, thin, “willowy” blade with the traditional Japanese single-bevel edge and hollow-ground back.
Although it is often used for preparing fish, the yanagiba is also perfect for preparing meats, for example, making butterfly pork chops.
Ideal for slicing medium-sized roasts and fish.
The Shun Pro Sho series focuses exclusively on single edged and thus traditional Japanese blade shapes.
Thanks to an extremely high standard of manufacture and material properties, the series is particularly suitable for continuous professional use.
A visual highlight of the knives, they are elaborately decorated with an ornamental pattern in an innovative manufacturing process.
