Sushi and sashimi knives
Japanese cuisine requires different knives to the Western kitchen. A unique trait of Japanese knives is their single cutting edge. One side is sharpened and the other remains flat, as to Western knives, which are sharpened on both sides. The flat end on Japanese knives makes sure that food doesn’t stick to the knife. Another difference is sharpness. Japanese knives are much sharper than Western knives as they require delicate handling and slicing. Two important knives for making sushi are the Yanagiba and the Usuba. Good thing both knives are in this sushi set!
