Description

The Shun Dual Core Yanagiba Knife 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 thick rather than 2.5mm. This gives the knife heft and rigidity, enabling it to glide through cuts with ease and grace. The Shun Dual Core Yanagiba is the perfect knife for slicing raw proteins. It is, quite simply, the ultimate sushi knife.

The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. 71 alternating micro-layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Core's extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.
