KICHIJI KAMAGATA USUBA 240mm / VEGETABLE KNIFE
This is a Kansai style of Usuba knife (Vegetable knife).
Usuba literally means “thin blade” indicating its relative thinness compared to the other knives.
Kamagata style variation has a spine that curves downwards at the tip, allowing the usuba to do fine, delicate work such as “katuramuki” which is shaving a cylindrical vegetable into a thin sheet.
Kichiji knives are painstakingly created by master craftsmen in Sakai, Osaka. History of 800 years knife making.
The blade of these knives is extremely sharp and easy to sharpen however carbon steel knives require special care to avoid rusting.
Recommend for both professional chefs and beginners.
