Hi-

I was thinking of getting a knife from you as a gift for a friend and had a couple questions:

Can the Yanagibas/Sushi Knives be used for carving/roasts/turkey/etc. or should they only be used for sashimi? I like how they look more than the Sujihikis, but the knife will probably be used more for roasts/etc.

If I ordered one this weekend would I be able to receive it by next Friday? (It's for a gift.) I live in New York.

I had narrowed it down to the following: do you think one is better than the other or is there another you'd recommend in this price range ($150-$300) as a gift?

Tanaka Damascus Sashimi 270mm

Kikuichi Carbon Yanagi Sashimi 240mm

Thanks a lot!
Seth

Hi Seth,

Yes absolutely. They are designed to slice and they'll slice anything from fish to roasts.

Yes if you order today you will get it Wednesday or Thursday using the free ground. You need to get the order in as soon as possible.

Of the two you listed I really like the Tanaka: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tanakasashimi1.html
