Yanagiba

As my time in America draws to a close, I have gone on a craze of buying, and among some of my purchases, a 8 1/2" Shun Yanagiba. I have to say, I use this way more than my Henckels 8" chefs, and Henckels santuko. I use it for slicing, dicing, and just about everything. The knife is amazingly sharp, and glides through anything! When I return to Italy, this is DEFINATELY going to be drooled on by my friends. Does anyone else own one of these?

I don't have that particular brand, but I do have those style knives that were made by a now deceased Japanese master swordsmith.

Single bevel knives are easy to keep sharp.

Do you find that your knife doesn't slide over plastic cutting boards? Instead of sliding, they actually cut into the board and get stuck?
