Hello,

I am looking for a excellent knive for sashimi cutting. My main criterium is sharpness and retention, but it also might be a nice looking knive. The price is not so important, and I am always taking good care of my knives. Can you give me your advice?

Best regards,

Joseph

Hi Joseph,

We will be happy to give you some recommendations. We need a little more info.

Are you right handed?
What size Yanagi did you want? 270mm is the most popular size.
I assume you want a good carbon steel yanagi?
Did you have a general price range? We have a lot with a very wide range.
Do you want a saya with the knife?

Assuming you're right handed, it doesn't get any more excellent than this:

It's easily the most well-made knife I've ever owned. Not to mention White #1 takes on a ridiculous edge. If you're using the knife the way it was intended, retention should not be an issue at all. Go for sharp!

I got one (the Doi) recently as well. I ended up spending a few hours on the stones to flatten out the blade road and it's screaming sharp now. There was more uneveness than I expected...
