For the true Japanese food aficionado, nothing compares to the scalpel-like precision of a single-bevel blade. The newly updated Shun Pro line features the same incredibly sharp chisel edges as in the past, combined with D-shaped pakkawood handles, which lend a secure and comfortable grip.

The beautiful graffiti-etched blade is made with high-carbon VG10 steel, which takes and holds an edge longer than comparable knives. The blade backs are gently hollow ground, creating an air pocket between the knife and the food being cut, so the knife glides through food with quick precision. The wide shinogi (or blade bevel) makes sharpening these knives on a whetstone practically effortless.

The yanagiba (or willow blade) slicer features a long, thin, “willowy” blade that’s designed to be pulled through food. This creates the cleanest cuts imaginable and reduces the loss of natural juices.

Most often used for preparing sashimi, yanagiba knives are also excellent for slicing meats and other moist foods. Due to the single-bevel design, Shun Pro knives are best suited for right-handed cooks.

great knife
This knife is both beautiful and very sharp. Slices through meat and fish with an ease. Not too heavy and easy to use and priced well for value.
