This knife by Hokiyama offers the sharpness of traditional single bevel blades but are rust-resistant and not as brittle, so more suitable for cooks who don't want to work with a delicate knife.
The blade is actually made in the traditional style of the kasumi, but by layering Molybdenum Vanadium and soft stain-resistant steel instead of carbon steel and soft iron.
Created for slicing raw fish, this yanagi is also ideal for carvingcooked meat, thinly slicing vegetables or portioning terrines and patés.
