KICHIJI KASUMI KAMAGATA USUBA 195mm ROSE WOOD HANDLE
This is a Kansai style of Usuba 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 “Katsuramuki” which is shaving a cylindrical vegetable into a thin sheet. Kichiji knives are painstakingly created by master craftsmen in Sakai, Osaka. The blade of these knives is extremely sharp and easy to sharpen however carbon steel knives require special care to avoid rusting. Rose wood handle is water-resistant and therefore perfect for keeping high standards of hygiene within your kitchen. Recommended for both professional chefs and beginners.
