Japanese Sashimi knife with wooden handle
The Japanese Sashimi knife is specially designed for the preparation of sushi and sashimi, a traditional Japanese dish made from raw fish. Recognized by its long, thin and tapered blade, the Sashimi knife allows precise and delicate slices of fish without damaging the fillets.
Seki city in Japan is one of the major cutlery centers in the world. Its history goes back to the 1300s, when the famous blacksmith Motoshige set up his workshop in Seki. Swords forged in this area were known to be unbreakable and incredibly sharp. From the days of the samurai to the present day, Seki continues this tradition of craftsmanship by producing Japanese knives that are renowned throughout the world.
