Tojiro MV – Yanagiba 270mm (Right Handed)
Tojiro is one of the few manufactures in Japan that performs all of its manufacturing processes in-house. They choose this path of integrated in-house production, from the careful selection of materials to after sale service. The reason why they are able to deliver high quality lies in their commitment to being directly involved in every aspect of making their knives.
As knives are tools that people directly take into their hands to use, Tojiro values the skills of producers, which are the foundation of manufacturing, and keep a close eye on all processes until each craftsman at TOJIRO is completely satisfied. Our knives that are produced by traditional techniques and modern industrial technology are held in the highest regard not only in Japan, but around the world.
The Yanagiba is like a carving knife on rocket boosters. It slips through food effortlessly and crazy sharpness of the single edge means you will never struggle. Its a true gateway knife for people wanting to get into single bevel knives and learn some cool tricks. When slicing with a yanagiba the blade will naturally want to pull to the left on a right handed knife. (The opposite is true for is true for a lefty. ) As the driver of the blade, you must take control and tell it where to go. Sounds tricky, but you will get the hang of it after a while. Still the Yanagiba can take years to master.
This is a true slicing machine for people who love excellence.
Molybdenum Vanadium Stainless steel:
AUS 8 is a high carbon, low chromium stainless steel that has proven, over time, to be a very good compromise between toughness, strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion.
It has added Vanadium to give the steel more hardness. This steel is very easy to sharpen to a razor edge but it will dull relatively quickly compared to high-carbon.

- Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
- Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
- Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
- Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
- Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
- Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
- Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
- Never transport knives unprotected.
