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!

Yanagiba sashimi knife

This knife is great for cutting and filleting fish due to its long, slim blade. Because of its sharpness, it is also good for cutting sushi rolls. Wet your knife before cutting the sushi rolls to make sure the rice doesn’t stick to your knife.

Usuba vegetable knife

With this knife, you can easily cut and peel vegetables, fruit, and nori sheets into paper-thin slices. When cutting, its thin, straight blade makes complete contact with the cutting board – perfect for making clean cuts. • Professional sushi and sashimi knives made of stainless steel • ATTENTION: do NOT wash in the dishwasher • These knives are covered by Homey’s 5 years warranty policy
