You will certainly want a sujihiki for slicing proteins as a yanagiba is a very specialized knife. Between getting white or blue steel.. as I understand it, the white Fujiyamas are slightly heavier than the blue ones. That aside, the blue will hold an edge longer, and the white will sharpen easier.

If you are okay with paying for a Fujiyama series, I see no point in recommending another knife unless you are looking to spend less. :mrgreen: They are excellent knives, I must say.

Yeah, if the Fujiyama's are in your budget, I won't even consider recommending anything else.

Between them, I would choose the white cause I like white.....others love blue. :)

I recently purchased the Richmond Artifex Sujihiki and I am quite impressed. I was able to successfully breakdown the following proteins:

Full Beef Loin Primal
Round Fish
Flat Fish
Beef Tenderloin
Full Bone In Pork Loin

The knife is very inexpensive but it crazy sharp and very easy to sharpen. It is very flexible as well. Give it a look.
