A kaisaki has a short blade that somewhat resembles a miniature yanagi. It was originally designed for the preparation of shellfish but over time, chefs have adopted it for garnish preparation.

Tatsutogi is Kikuichi's most cost-effective traditional single bevel series. Hand-forged in the sword-making tradition from two pieces of carbon steel, the tatsutogi series also features many uncommon, specialty knife shapes. With a soft steel as the edge, these are easier to sharpen, making them good beginner Japanese knives.
