Seki Kanetsugu applies their expertise in crafting traditional knives to produce knives that are appealing to non-Japanese cooks. This knife offers the sharpness of a traditional single bevel blade but is rust-resistant and not as brittle, so more suitable for cooks who don't want to work with a delicate knife.
Created for slicing raw fish, this yanagi is also ideal for carving cooked meat, thinly slicing vegetables or portioning terrines and pates. One of the reasons why Kanetsugu's brand name is not more widespread is because they are the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of several famous German and Japanese knife brands.
