The Wüsthof CLASSIC Yanagiba knife with blade guard (9753), made according to ancient traditions, is a set for the perfect cut. With the new Yanagiba knife, Wüsthof has added a new type of blade to its CLASSIC range. Those who have always wanted to be able to finely slice sushi and sashimi will really appreciate this knife. Using the special cutting technique (the cut is made almost horizontally to the cutting base), wafer-thin slices can be chopped/cut/separated. The Yanagiba - which literally translates as "willow leaf" - is the epitome of the traditional Japanese knife. It is a standard feature in the kitchen of every professional Japanese chef. The knife is primarily used with a pulling motion in one direction only. This means that the blade produces a completely clean cut.
The Wüsthof CLASSIC Yanagiba knife is forged from red-hot chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel and hardened to 58 ° Rockwell. In accordance with Japanese forging methods, the knife made by the Wüsthof specialists in Solingen also has a one-sided edge.
The ergonomic Wüsthof CLASSIC handle not only fits nicely in the hand, it also ensures a safe hold when cutting. To prevent the blade from being damaged during storage, it also comes with the appropriate kind of protection. Included with the knife is a bamboo sheath in which the blade can be safely stored away. Magnets fitted inside the sheath also fix the blade so that it will not slip or slide out of the bamboo sheath by mistake.
If cutting performance deteriorates, the Yanagiba knife can easily be sharpened using a whetstone.
