I finally got my hands on a nice Yanagiba, this one is new and just brought in to one of the kitchen stores here, the Manager gave it to me to play with. This is a MAC, I don't know what anyone thinks about the MAC Yanagi but I was grateful for the opportunity.

I loved sharpening it, very enjoyable and rewarding.

You can see the tomato I tested it on, easily one of the sharpest knives that I have personally had my hands on. I guess that is typical though of these knives once sharpened.

Gees imagine if I had some naturals.

Very nice! I love the bite of a single bevel blade, just that scary feeling like you don't want to know how sharp it truly is... hehe. Beautiful polish! :D

Thanks Shaun. Sadly and I'm a little embarassed about it actually, I don't own a carbon knife, like the ones you all seem to have drawers full of. I really concentrate on sharpening and although I love "your" knives, I just have not taken the plunge yet. I think that all changed last night though.

Now I've seen/felt many sharp knives, have taken countless trips upstairs from my sharpening cave to show my wife because I was excited about the edge and God love her, after 500 of these little "shows", she still pretends it's cool and somehow she makes me feel good about myself. Then I get over myself and go down and do another knife.

Then out comes this Yanagiba - It looked good, felt good and I was pleased with it but when I tried it out on the tomato and let my wife do the same. It was almost like I've never sharpened anything before until now, what a feeling as the knife bit into it. Could not believe how thin we could make the slices. You've all been there I know this.


Fun times.........I'm getting myself a new knife.

I want a good Yanagiba to play with one day. The only Yanagi I own is the Shun Pro,... not terribly impressed to say the least, but it's a pretty knife. :D

Now I wanna go get out the aoto and the deba and play in the mud for a little while..... so much for moderating! lol Thanks Pete!
