To whom it may concern;
FedEx dropped off my Tanaka Sekiso 300mm Yanagiba about a half hour ago. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tanakasashimi.html
I must say, no photograph can convey the the beauty of this knife. It has
held in the hand, and examined under sunlight, in order to truly appreciate
The etch on the blade brings out the layers perfectly, without being over
etched, and the overall graceful shape, the engraved kanji, and the plain
wood handle, make the knife an esthetic experience in itself. I can't wait
The damascus cladding enhances the esthetics, for me at least, so I guess
would be a bit of an understatement to say that I am absolutely delighted.
the owner of two of Mr. Tanaka's knives, I have become a great fan of his
for both practical reasons, and for their beauty.
I realize that one can spend a great deal more money, and that $350 is just
about the least one should spend in order to have a "decent" Yanagiba.
am an amateur hack, and not a professional Sushi Chef, this knife will
well, I am certain.
