【What is Yanagiba knife?】

Yanagiba knife is used for making fresh sashimi right after dismantling fish. It is called "Yanagi-ba" as the sharpness of the blade resembles a willow leaf (yanagi-ba) in Japanese. It is a single-edged knife with a blade on only one side. It can cut the cross section of the fish/food sharply so the corner can be made crisp. While Santoku/Gyuto are used in 'pushing cutting', the Yanagi-ba is used in ‘pulling to cut' only
