A Yanagi Sashimi Knife is the Japanese equivalent to a western utility knife. The yanagi sashimi knife is perfect for everyday slicing and dicing. It can be used for slicing fish, meats, and vegetables. The long blade makes a perfect slicer or carving knife for long pieces of fish or vegetables. The long, slim blade of the yanagi sashimi knife is ideal for creating garnishes, cutting sushi rolls, and filleting fish.
