Looking for a yanagi.

Fri May 18, 2012 6:06 pm

Mark,

I'd like to try getting into a single bevel white steel traditional
Yanagiba. I'd like to stay in the $300 range for this first knife. I think
300mm is right. Can you give me your top recommendations? Is a knife in this
price range one that will be worth it?


Thanks
David

There are several good ones in that price range. First tell me a couple
things:

Are you right handed?
Do you know how to sharpen?
Do you want stainless or carbon steel?
Is this for home or work?

Kind Regards,

Right handed.

I sharpen freehand on a set of stones I bought from you. I know a
Yanagi has some special considerations but I'm willing and interested
to take those on.

White steel. I'd go for #1 but I understand it is more expensive, so
would settle for #2.

Home. This knife will be reserved for specialty slicing tasks.

300mm Length with saya and ebony octagonal but I think I'll have to stick with a
magnolia handle (blonde color) to stay within budget.

Thanks
David

Hi David,

Let me check pricing with Konosuke for this. I think we can get you this for about your price.

300mm Yanagi White #2
Ebony and Blonde With Saya.

I'll price it this way and with the ho wood handle. I'll be in touch soon.

Hi David,

Konosuke has a white #2 satin finish, 300mm yanagi, ho wood octagonal handle for $281 + 17 for saya.

If you want the ebony handle version it would be 336 + 17 for the saya.
