The yanagiba is a single bevel knife designed for making long, smooth slices in fish preparation. Unlike the sujihiki, a yanagiba is typically thicker and heavier and the single bevel design is even sharper which allows for even smoother cuts.

If you are looking for a general slicer/carving knife, we recommend a double bevel sujihiki.
