It is difficult to beat the classic Yanagiba single-sided knife in thin cutting.

Despite these nuances, Yanagiba remains indispensable for professionals. 
For a beginner who has begun to master the intricacies of cooking Oriental cuisine dishes, should start forming your personal kitchen knives kit, with a Sujihiki knife, adapted for western users. 

In the cut potential, he is almost equal to Yanagi, but does not have a sideways movement related with the special grind form, and the process for re-sharpening it is much simpler.

An ordinary Chef's knife or Santoku is also capable of much, but inferior in blade length, and much wider. 
Therefore, they stick more noticeably in soft foodstuffs.
