The Yanagi knife 21 cm KAI Seki Magoroku Redwood is a single-beveled traditional Japanese slicing knife. 

Its long blade allows creating easily thin, perfect slices of raw fish, needed for sushi and sashimi. To slice, start with the back of the knife blade and simply pull it through the fish, letting the weight of the blade itself do the work. 

Made for right-hand use, the yanagiba has a bevel on the right side and a concave on the left. This allows a more acute angle compared to most double bevel knives and nonstick properties.


The back face (urasuki) is concave to easily detach the blade from the substance being cut, and the front bevel (shinogi) allows sliced piece to be easily removed from the blade after cutting.    

The Seki Magoroku Redwood captivates by its mirror-finished blade and the exquisitely polished edge that gives the series a high cutting performance. 

These Japanese designed knives feature an AUS8 vanadium - molybdenium stainless steel polished blade with a hardness of 58±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair. 

The traditional chestnut-shaped handle is made from Redwood. This hardwood naturally has high oil content and is therefore water-resistant. The polished polypropylene bracket adds harmony to the wood’s modern colour. 

Because of the Japanese design, these knives don’t have a bolster so the whole edge can be used and the entire length can be sharpened.
The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi. 
Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. 
The slightly curved, traditional chestnut-shaped handle makes every knife of the line a right hand knife. 


Made in Japan with the latest technology of the cutlery industry.
