Its length allows it to cut sushi and sashimi like a Yanagi, and the wideness of the blade gives it the dexterity to do multiple jobs. The sword tip also helps balance the weight of the knife and can be used for intricate and precise knife work for excuisite service. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
