Tojiro Yanagiba Left 270mm (10.6")
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
🚩 The blade is suitable for left-handed users.
This knife boasts an extremely sharp blade, traditional magnolia wood handle and superb MV steel.
The ratio between the weight of the blade and handle guarantees excellent balance which is extremely important for precise cutting of meat and fish.
The steel is on the softer side (57-59 HRC), but that makes it less sensitive and simpler to maintain. When used correctly, it remains sharp for a very long time and resharpening is a breeze. Tojiro’s blacksmiths processed the steel so that the blade prides itself on the best of all characteristics that are indispensable for work either in a home or professional kitchen: maximum resistance to wear and rust.
The most important feature of the new Tojiro TOSHU series is that it is made for left-handed people who, until now, were often deprived of a wide selection of traditional, single-bevel blades. Single-bevel blades are usually available only for right-handed users, while versions for lefties are extremely rare, also in the Japanese market. Toshu series brings change – beautiful single-bevel knives for left-handed users, and a reasonable price tag to boot.
Tojiro is one of the top 5 largest Japanese kitchen knife manufacturers. They are renowned across Japan and internationally for their top-quality knives for a reasonable price. Tojiro's focus on advanced technologies, together with their insatiable dedication for constant improvements of their knives and materials, makes Tojiro's knives a must-have in any kitchen. Tojiro's main focus? Sharpness!
A big bonus is their great team which we are always very eager to meet and talk to! 😊

The knife came as advertised in just a few days from our order. Not only is it pretty and very very sharp but it weighs just a few ounces. We might not be cutting a lot of prosciutto with it, but it will find its way to other uses. We love it! Enjoyed doing business with you.
