  • Our handmade Yoshihiro Ao Ryu Blue Steel knives are crafted with extraordinary skill by our master artisans. Aoko Blue Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 63 to 64, is intricately forged with iron to create beautiful wave like patterns. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of exceptional performance with such exquisite beauty.

    Our Yoshihiro Ao Ryu Blue Steel knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Ebony wooden handle affixed with a Water Buffalo horn bolster, and a protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The Yanagi is a long slicing knife that was designed to slice thin slices of fish for sushi and sashimi. The beauty of its elegant thin blade is its ability to slice through an ingredient in long uninterrupted strokes, preserving its integrity and freshness. The Yanagi is one of the most essential of traditional Japanese knives and is a powerful component in the repertoire of many chefs. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.

    Care & Sharpening:Traditional Japanese knife making values a sharp edge, which requires attention and care. Sharpening and honing should be done with only water whetstones. Hand wash and dry only, and do so immediately if working with acidic ingredients. Only use on boneless flesh of fish.
