This video tells in exhaustive detail how to use Kiritsuke Yanagiba knives (or a maker calls them “hien”) for Japanese sushi.
The Kiritsuke Yanagiba itself has a stylish shape like Japanese sword or Katana, and is very functional to make sushi and sashimi.
This time, the stage is a sushi restaurant “SHIMIZU” where a skilled sushi chef shows excellent demonstration to make hand-shaped sushi with some topping — suzuki(sea bass), nodoguro(blackthroat seaperch), kamasu, aka-ika(calamari), toro(fatty tuna), kasugo-dai(kasugo-sea bream), kohada(gizzard shad), aji(horse mackerel) and maguro(tuna).
We’re sure you enjoy watching it.
If you have any question, request and advice, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you and best regards !
