Designed to flawlessly manage long and deep, straight cuts, the 13-inch Yanagiba is capable of skinning large fish in a single motion. Using a process refined over generations, the 13-inch Yanagiba is sharpened by Kamikoto’s master knifesmiths and each blade is individually inspected before leaving the workshop and being shipped to customers. This commitment in the production of each of its blades has made Kamikoto the knife manufacturer of choice among several chefs at high-end restaurants around the world.

The 13-inch Yanagiba is being introduced through a limited-edition run of blades that are currently available on a first-come, first-served basis. The knife can be purchased directly from Kamikoto at kamikoto.com for $320.
