You can slice fish and make sushi, sashimi easily. Your cooking will go through a dramatic change!
This is the Soutan Yanagi Kirtsuke knife.It is made not only stainless steels and ceramics, but also Aoko (Blue steel #2). It is made of Japanese swords (Samurai Katana) technique for a long time, then it feature tough and sharpness. It was first used in the Kanto region of Japan. The tip of the knife is slanted like Kiritsuke knives. It has a pleasant appearance, and makes the sharpening relatively less complicated due to its width at the tip of the blade. This knife is recommended for those who enjoy preparing sashimi. It is a long and thin knife which gives you ease in thinly cutting fish and shellfish.
I am a chef. In the past, I have heard from colleagues of the high quality standards of ARITSUGU. In the near future I would also like to use this knife. Once I use it, I will be able to know how well it cuts. By looking at it's handle and tip design, I felt it's traditional Japanese uniqueness. When I received the sword and the information sheet, I understood the knife's maintenance, therefore I also purchased a sharpening stone and oil. I was relieved that the maintenance explanation was clear and that I was able to maintain the knife in good condition. In Japan, it is customary to use this type of knife for a long time and pass it along to the next generation. I would like to do the same! (From USA)
