Single-edged knives are able to get incredibly sharp and provide deep precise cuts. Yanagi Sashimi knives are great for commercial use and are commonly seen in Japanese restaurants and sushi bars.

Bunmei Japanese traditional kitchen knives are made by Yoshikin in Japan, the makers of renowned GLOBAL knives. Each knife is handmade using high carbon Molybdenum/Vanadium Stainless Steel giving the knife excellent edge retention. At first glance, these knives radiate a typical Japanese vibe with its slip-resistant magnolia wood handle and black collar. The Bunmei range includes both traditional Japanese blades that are ground on one side of the blade only, as well as a selection of the best selling Western-style blades that we all know and love. Bunmei knives are more blade heavy with no bolster and only a partial tang. This is typical of all traditional Japanese knives.
