Gesshin Stainless Damascus 240mm Yanagiba

  • The Gesshin Damascus Yanagiba is stainless steel at about 61hrc.  They come with mahogany octagonal handles and white spacers.  The sayas are included and have a genius addition... the saya pin is attached to the saya by a string, so as to prevent the loss of the pin.


    Over the years, we've had a number of customers ask us for more stainless options for single bevel knives.  Many sushi restaurants in the west incorporate higher quantities of acidic foods and often push through a high volume of food, so having a stainless yanagiba can be very convienient in these cases.  Likewise, for homecooks that are not interested in the care and maintanance involved in carbon steel knives, stainless options often make more sense.


    The damascus pattern on the blade runs in a unique way... parallel to the edge.  These knives have a unique look, and to some, may be more aesthetically pleasing.


    For sharpening, we recommend the use of a microbevel with this series.
