I find it disturbing that Moritaka and Takeda call what I think of as a sujihiki (2 sided slicer), a yanagi. Part of me wants to change it but up until now I've used their term. What do you guys think?


Let's vote on this. Should I call the Takeda and Moritaka slicers, yanagis or sujis? :)

I hear yanagiba, I think single bevel. I hear sujihiki, I think double bevel.

If it has a thick spine I feel like the name yanagi could still be relevant.

For a double bevel --> Sujihiki.

You could add the kiritsuke to this bit of confusion :( I would just say that they are double beveled yanagi / kiritsuke to respect the maker's nomenclature and remark that a double beveled yanagi is a sujihiki. I don't think there is a more correct term for a double beveled kiritsuke, so a sawed off gyuto might not be a great marketing term lol.

It is disturbing. Not a great tragedy, but it confuses people.

Sometimes I see a double bevel Kiritsuke being called "Kiritsuke Gyuto". Besides being double bevel, these "gyutos" are often taller than the traditional kiritsuke and with more belly.

Ad then we have double bevel debas, honesukis... :roll:

Kiritsuke/gyuto was my rediculous invention several years back. Also, funayuki/gyuto. I apologize....:)

I don't know Japanese and, as a result, I lack understanding of the intricacies of the language. I have to agree with respecting the maker's nomenclature.

+1with Ken's comments. Double bevel Yanagiba is a nice way to describe them.
