The yanagiba is the traditional, single-beveled, Japanese slicing knife. It really is the only way to create the thin, perfect slices of raw fish needed for sushi and sashimi. The key is the yanagiba’s long blade and razor-sharp edge. To slice with the Wasabi Yanagiba, start with the back of the knife blade and simply pull it through the fish, letting the weight of the blade itself do the work.
