The Pinnacle of Knife Art
- You will take pride in owning this knife, as it truly has a presence of its own.
- When you hold this razor-sharp blade, you’ll instantly notice that it feels more like an ethereal extension of your arm, rather than an ordinary kitchen tool.
- We think this is one of the reasons that the blade was named “Fantomu,” which roughly translates to English meaning “The Phantom.”
Looks Beautiful & Feels Deadly
- Fantomu beautifully boasts an eye-catching D-shaped Bubinga wood handle.
- It’s guaranteed to fit into your palm and grant much more maneuverability.
- Combined with a stunning hand-polished matte finish on the blade and an impeccably engineered handle cap that provides the perfect counterbalance, this knife really is as satisfying to hold as it is to look at.
The Master of Slicing
- The Yanagiba is a thick, heavy, single-bevel slicer that is traditionally used in Japanese cuisine to prepare thin slices of raw fish for sushi dishes. Its long and narrow blade effortlessly glides through delicate fish meat, allowing for paper-thin slicing without and tearing or pulling.
- With a precision forged high carbon core composed of Japanese VG-10 steel and insulated on either side with two layers of premium Japanese stainless steel, Fantomu is a high-performance sashimi slicing master.
- However, we also have found that this knife is becoming popular in western kitchens and is being used for other meats such as turkey, flank steaks, and pork tenderloins.
It Evokes the Feeling of Power
- You might decide to use Fantomu like a traditional Yanagiba and prepare only sushi with it, or you may go ahead and embrace the new age of cooking norms and use it for other tasks too.
- Whatever you choose, this knife promises to stand out from the rest of your blades and will instantly generate a sensation of power and confidence when you hold it.
