The Sashimi Knife Designed by F.A. Porsche with a 9 3/4" blade is a specially designed knife for cutting fish. These knives are used primarily by Sushi chefs to thinly slice fish but they are increasingly becoming popular with western cooks for a multitude of tasks including roast carving. There are a variety of different styles of sashimi knives that have different blade designs. The most popular is the yanagi or yanagiba.
All Chroma Type 301 kitchen knives feature Japanese 301 stainless steel that’s ground on both sides of the blade to present an extra-sharp edge upon its very first use. As an added benefit, Japanese 301 steel is able to maintain edge sharpness longer than any other type of steel. Here’s how the Chroma cleaver surpasses the competition. For starters, it’s lightweight. Second, it’s a well-balanced knife. If you’re puzzled as to where to place your hand to ensure perfect knife balance, for a clue look no further than the small, raised metal knob on the side of the knife. It marks where the blade and handle interset, helping you find the perfect grip for maximum knife control. Finally, its "V" shape feels super comfortable in the hand so you can work long periods of time without your hand muscles growing tired.
