Made In Just Launched a Gorgeous Limited-Edition Sushi Knife — and It’s Definitely Going to Sell Out
We’ll get straight to the point: When it comes to restaurant-quality knives, Made In is a cut above the rest. We’re already big fans of their Santoku-style knife (amazing for fall veggies) and their gorgeous cleaver (the kitchen tool you never knew you needed). But one knife is edging out the rest to earn top billing on our wish lists: Made In’s limited-edition Yanagi Knife.
Knife jokes aside — we do try to keep our puns sharp — this graceful tool just might be Made In’s best item yet. The knife, which retails for $199, is a marriage of style and function, making it one of the most giftable kitchen tools we’ve seen this year. Like all of Made In’s products, the Yanagi was designed with chefs in mind (sometimes, Made In even partners with pro cooks to design their tools).
It’s truly a work of art, with a thin, 9.5-inch blade and a handle unlike anything we’ve seen. The handle, which is made from non-slip wood, is a delicate swirl of blue-green patina known as verdigris. It’s artistic and unique; something even the most prolific knife collector will find enticing.
But looks aren’t even the half of it: This is a true professional’s knife, priced for us mere mortals. It’s crafted with sushi and sashimi in mind, with a single bevel blade that’s ideal for precision cuts that ensure no bit of fish is wasted. Trust us: If you’ve been sawing away at fish or meat with a dull blade, you’re going to be amazed at how clean these cuts are. But you don’t have to be a sushi enthusiast to appreciate this knife. Its superior edge can be used for carving meat (hi, Thanksgiving turkey) or slicing the perfect steak. We’re definitely gifting this to the kitchen nerds on our lists this holiday, but whether you’re giving or just want one for yourself, don’t wait to snap one up. Like all of Made In’s limited-edition, chef-worthy products, this stunner of a sushi knife is sure to sell out. Consider that a hot, err, tip.
