Tanaka Yanagiba Aogami#2 240mm (9.5")
☐ NEW WITH IMPERFECTIONS
Tanaka Yanagiba Aogami#2 240mm is a traditional Japanese knife. Due to its long and thin blade, it is mainly used for cutting thin slices of raw fish (ideal for sushi lovers), and also for cutting large pieces of meat (eg steaks). The knife is chisel ground (single bevel) and is suitable only for right-handed users. The blade is forged in Aogami #2 Blue steel, one of the most preferred steels by Japanese sushi chefs. High-carbon steels need more maintenance as they quickly develop a protective patina, and if not washed and wiped dry after every use, they will develop rust. The Aogami #2 core is laminated with softer steel.
This knife is missing kanji (signature) and has an incomplete stamp on the backside of the blade.
