Shun Kai Pro Sho Yanagiba Slicing Knife 24.1cm

The yanagiba is, quite simply, the ideal slicing knife. "Yanagiba" means, "willow blade."

True to its name, the Shun Classic Pro Yanagiba has a long, thin, "willowy" blade with the traditional Japanese single-bevel edge and hollow-ground back. It is designed to be pulled through the food, reducing the loss of the natural juices, and creating the cleanest cuts imaginable.

The yanagiba is most often used for preparing sashimi, or sliced raw fish, and is excellent for slicing meats and other moist foods as well. Shun offers three sizes of yanagiba slicing knives. At 8 ¼ inches, this is the shortest one—ideal for slicing smaller roasts and medium-sized fish.

  • Beautiful graffiti-etched blades

    Cleaning and Storage

    Shun recommends that you protect your investment by handwashing your blades with gentle dish soap.

    Don’t use soaps with citrus extracts or bleach; they can promote corrosion. Do not use scouring pads, steel, or gritty cleanser when cleaning the blades. Rinse and towel dry immediately.

    Let the knives air dry for a few minutes before returning them to storage. Never leave your knife sitting in a sink full of soapy water. It does metals no good to be submerged in water for prolonged periods of time, and it’s a danger to you when you reach in.

    After you have washed and dried your knives, store them in a block, knife case, in-drawer tray, or sheath. We do not recommend storing the knives unsheathed in a drawer, as this can be a potential hazard to the blades as well as your fingers.


    Handwashing is also the best way to care for the wood handles of your Shun knives.

    The handle color may change slightly over time due to oils in the hand as well as the natural color change of wood from oxidation and/or exposure to light. This is not a defect, but a natural part of the process.

    Honing and Sharpening

    In order to maximize the life of the blade, regular honing with a Shun steel will be necessary. Weekly honing will extend the time between sharpening significantly. When the time comes to sharpen these premium blades, we recommend using a whetstone, the Kai electric sharpener (specifically designed to sharpen Shun’s 16° blade angle), or sending the knives to a professional sharpener.
