Shun Pro2 9.5" Yanagiba



Welcome to the world of the Shun Pro II, so named because these are the types of blades that a professional Japanese Chef would use. In Japanese cooking, texture and repetitive consistency are critical elements that can only be achieved by having a perfectly sharp knife that is exactly the same every day; this is made possible by the single-bevel design. Japanese chefs hone and sharpen their knives daily; with the Shun Pro II the chef is able to use the bevel to gauge the angle in which to hold the knife every single time. The wide bevel allows the blade to be placed down flat on the stone, creating a built-in angle. The double-bevel on the Shun Classic is only a couple of millimeters wide, so there is no way to do this.

The Shun Pro II belong to the Honyaki style, where the blades are made from one piece of steel. In Japan, the most prized and expensive kitchen knives are made this way. The single piece of VG-10 is stronger than the clad material, and best suits the single-bevel design.

You will realize the superiority of the Shun Pro II Yanagiba from the moment you first hold it, making effortless cuts that seem to be performed entirely by the knife itself. It is an invaluable tool for sushi and sashimi, excelling particularly in the preparation of fish. The Yanagiba shall find good use in the same places one would use a Western slicing knife, on everything from meat to vegetables. Whether to start or supplement a set, this knife is certain to change your culinary experience just as it has for professional chefs worldwide.
