SASHIMI knife (single-edged)
SASHIMI(刺身) knife is a Japanese knife primarily used to cut fish and to make sashimi slices or filet fish. Please use this knife carefully as it is more sensitive and thinner than DEBA knife.
There are various lengths of SASHIMI knives. The length depends on how big your kitchen is and how skillful you are with cooking knives.
One of the characteristics of long SASHIMI knives is that it saw off ingredients by using a whole edge. Therefore, the shape of the cross-section used with Sashimi knife is smoother, and the taste becomes better than ones cut by a short knife. At first, this knife is hard to handle, so we recommend you to use a knife whose edge is between 240mm and 270mm length.
