The Yanagiba is most often used for preparing sashimi, or sliced raw fish, and is excellent for slicing meats and other moist foods as well. Shun offers three sizes of Yanagiba slicing knives. At 9 1/2 inches, this is the shortest one - ideal for slicing smaller roasts and medium-sized fish. The Shun Classic Pro 9 1/-in.

Because nothing compares to the scalpel-like precision of a single-bevel, the Shun Classic Pro line features single-bevel blades in pure VG10 stainless steel with sharp chisel edges and comfortable D-shaped PakkaWood handles. With their dramatic, graffiti-etched blades, these knives are visually striking as well. The etched design on the blade different for each blade style - is similar to etching found on custom Japanese knives and used to identify the blades maker.
