Oroshi Knives

An Oroshi Knife is a Japanese all-purpose cooking knife, but used particularly for fish.

It looks pretty much like a European chef knife. The blade is about 9 inches (23 cm) long. It is sharpened on one side only.

An Oroshi Knife can fillet a tuna fish in single cuts.

Language Notes

"Oroshi" in Japanese means "wholesale."
