Ai-Yanagiba is a knife with a slightly smaller blade width than normal yanagiba.
Please add it to your kitchen knife collection.
It is a oil quenching products of traditional craftsman Kenichi Shiraki.
This is a valuable one because he is already retired.
Occasionally found, but often not for sale.
If possible, we recommend that you sharpen with a natural whetstone.
During quenching, a wave-like pattern appears by placing mud on the knife. It is called a Hamon in Japanese.
