Meaning “Willow Leaf” the Yanagiba is a single bevel knife used for slicing fish into sashimi. Another regional version of this knife is the Takohiki 蛸引 or “Octopus puller” which has a square tip.
A Sujihiki, “meat slicer”, is a double bevel knife used for slicing raw and cooked meats. The thin width of the knife helps reduce sticking and the length reduces the need for sawing through food.
