Caution

  • Left-handed knives are not available for this set.
  • Wooden knife covers are not included in this set.

The yanagi used to slice boneless fish fillets into sashimi and toppings for sushi. The graceful, thin blade cuts beautiful slices in one long, drawing stroke. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region.

The Usuba is a traditional Japanese knife used to cut or make thin sheets of vegetables. Originated in Kanto (Tokyo) region of Japan.

The Deba is often used in the Japanese fish markets and restaurants that work with whole fish, because it is designed to behead and fillet fish without damaging the fish. Although many use the deba on other meats, the deba is not intended for chopping of large diameter bones nor should it be used by slamming down the knife like a cleaver. For the best results, please put pressure on the spine of the knife to put clean and precise cuts. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region of Japan.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Carbons knives are not stain resistant. Rust and discoloration will occur after cutting acidic ingredients or if left wet.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting. Korin recommends wiping carbon knives with tsubaki oil to keep moisture off the knife.
  • Traditional Japanese knives have significantly thinner and more delicate blades than Western knives. The use of honing steels or sharpening machines will result in chipping.
  • Please do not attempt to cut through bones with traditional Japanese knives, unless it is a butchering knife.
  • Traditional Japanese knives could slightly bend, due to the heat tempering of the two different carbon quality steel in the blade. Korin offers customers a free service to prepare the knife before use.
  • We advise all customers to have a skilled sharpener put the initial blade on knives, due to how the initial blade serves as a sharpening guide in the future. Korin offers a complimentary initial sharpening and uraoshi sharpening with every purchase.
  • It is important to always flatten sharpening stones with a stone fixer to avoid knives from warping shapes.
  • Please always use sharpening stones to sharpen traditional Japanese knives.
