This style of knife is super versatile, it’s often compared to a combination of a Nakiri (vegetable knife) and a Sujihiki (meat and fish knife). This style of knife is a great addition to any collection and you will find yourself reaching for this knife more and more as you continue to learn how this knife can adapt to a plethora of different tasks.
The blade is crafted using the finest Damascus steel with 67 layers of material skillfully worked into this beautiful shape and expertly heat-treated to bring the hardness of this knife to a Rockwell Hardness of 60±1.
The Yuri benefits from an Octoganal handle which provides superior grip and hand control when using this knife.
