Hi

These 2 all seem to perform roughly the same task, what are the differences ?

Yanagi and fugu are single bevels, suji is doublebevel. Yanagi is the traditional knife for portioning fish, fuguhiki is a thinner version of it intended for fugu (blowfish).

Single bevel knives act differently than double bevels so you would have to adjust your style depending on the knife used.

I use a suji backwards (according to some) cutting from left to right, with the product being cut on the left side of me. I could not do the same cut with a right handed yanagi, I'd have to adjust the whole cutting system. I don't use my yanagi nearly enough at the moment but I'm trying to get that fixed lol.
