In Japanese, "Yanagiba" means "willow blade" and the yanagiba is, quite simply, an ideal slicing knife. Designed to be pulled gently through the food, this precise, single-bevel blade reduces loss of the natural juices and creates the cleanest cuts imaginable. It is the tool of choice for slicing raw fish for sashimi and it is often used for slicing sushi rolls.
