The yanagi is used to slice boneless fish fillets into sashimi and toppings for sushi. The graceful, long and thin blade is designed to cut slices in one drawing stroke, which applies minimal pressure on the flesh of the fish to avoid stress and cell destruction.

Different cutting techniques are used with the yanagi to enhance the aesthetics and the flavors of the fish. There are several variations of fish slicers that are all used in different situations and regions, however the yanagi style is the most widely used. Longer blades will produce better results for slicing through the fish without damaging the flesh.

Korin's traditional Japanese 8A knives are made of 8A Austrian stain resistant steel and a magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster. The 8A steel is a high quality steel with rust-resistant ideal for busy chefs. They are easier to maintain than carbon steel knives, and have a longer edge retention.
