This is a high-class Japanese yanagiba knife (also known as sashimi knife) made of molybdenum-vanadium steel that is designed to cut sashimi or raw fish smoothly. This alloy is not only sharp but also has great rust- and abrasion-resistance, and long-lasting sharpness.
The blade and handle are integrately molded and a bolster is attached between them. This makes the washing easier thus keeps this full-metallic knife more hygienic. You can also sterilize it with hot water.
Its right-left asymmetric handle has diagonal-lines-patterned concaves on one side of its surface which enables you to hold and control the knife firmly even with wet or oily hand.
Tojiro is the specialist of manufacturing kitchen knives whose products are well-known for its outstanding sharpness.
