Shun – Pro Sho Yanagiba Knife 26.7cm
The Shun Classic Pro 26.7cm Yanagiba is our longest single-bevel Japanese slicing knife. “Yanagiba” means simply “willow blade” for the yanagibas long, slender blade resembles the long, narrow leaves of a willow.
To use the Shun Classic Yanagiba, gently pull it through the food using just the weight of the blade itself to do the cutting.
The incredible sharpness of the blade reduces loss of the natural juices and creates the cleanest cuts imaginable.
The yanagiba is most often used for slicing raw fish for sashimi and for slicing sushi rolls, yet it is also perfect for preparing meats, for example, making butterfly pork chops.
Like all traditional yanagibas, the Shun Classic Pro 26.7cm Yanagiba has a razor-sharp, single-bevel blade and hollow-ground back.
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.
