Shun Knives: Dual Core Yanagiba 10.5"
The Shun Dual Core Yanagiba 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.
