The Shun Dual Core Yanagiba has the length, weight, and single-bevel design of a traditional Japanese yanagiba. The blade stock is thicker than the rest of the Dual Core series (4.5mm vs 2.5mm). This gives the knife heft and rigidity to glide through cuts with ease. This single-bevel blade offers a strong, razor-sharp edge and simplified sharpening. A gentle hollow-grind on the back of the blade makes food release easier. The Shun Dual Core Yanagiba is, quite simply, the ultimate sushi knife.
