* As our kitchen knives are hand-made (some with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.

* Non stainless steel kitchen and chef knives require a small amount of care to prevent surface rust. Even though this can easily be removed if it does occur, we recommend you hand wash and thoroughly dry after each use, do not use a dishwasher. For extended storage, coat in an oil like our Tsubaki.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Sakimaru (Slicing Knife)

Like it's Yanagiba cousin, the Sakimaru knife is traditional style of Japanese chef knife, generally used for the preparation of sashimi. Sakimaru knives (like Yanagiba) are a long, thick single bevel knife, the difference being the tip design of a Sakimaru being pointed.  Although mainly used by the elite to prepare fish, some western chefs do use these knives for other slicing duties like roast meat carving.
