The Asian Precision knife collection by Messermeister provides the perfection of knife making with professional quality and great value. They are manufactured from high-carbon, high chromium 440A stanless steel alloy, tempered and flat-ground to a razor-sharp edge in the renowned cutlery capital of Seki, Japan. The resin-laminated paper, Pakkawood, handles are compression riveted to the full tang that includes both Eastern and Western blade shapes for any style of cooking.
The Messermeister Asian Precision 10" Sushi or Yanagiba Knife knife has a long, narrow, single edge, pointed blade that is traditionally used to prepare sashimi, sushi, slice raw fish and seafood. The best way to use this knife is by pulling it through the meat, not sawing or pushing, to create a clean and uniform slice. This is a great knife for any at home or professional sushi/seafood chef.
