Gesshin Uraku 270mm White #2 Yanagiba with Red Lacquerware Handle and Saya

  • Our Gesshin Uraku line represents a great value in kitchen cutlery. For a long time, we have been searching for a line of single bevel knives with a great balance of quality and value. We’ve finally found them. This Gesshin Uraku line fits the bill perfectly. These knives are made of white #2 steel with a kasumi finish. They come with very nice red and black lacquered handles and saya, and have a very elegant aesthetic. Unlike many low-cost single bevel knives, these ones are very well finished and have significantly fewer problems than lower cost knives (all knives have some imperfections…even high-end knives…but these have less high and low spots, less sharp non-cutting edges, less prevalence of wavy backs, less prevalence of torsional twisting, etc.)

    These knives are great for beginners and for professionals looking for a great, functional work knife.  We hope you enjoy this line from Gesshin Uraku.
