Description: The nakiri usuba is a traditional Japanese knife form ideal for chopping fruit and vegetables. The edge is double-beveled, like a Western knife. Though sometimes called a vegetable cleaver, the thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than a Japanese equivalent to meat cleavers.
The blade is forged using the san mai technique - a hard steel forms the cutting edge and is sandwiched between softer layers of steel. This results in a strong knife with very long edge holding. The core steel is aogami #2 carbon steel -- among the best carbon steels coming out of Japan. It was heat treated to Hrc 60-61) for a high performance, durable edge. A distal taper results in a perfect balance. The satin finished (migaki) sides of the knife have been convex ground to help food fall away from the side of the knife when slicing and chopping.
The bubinga handle fits comfortably and securely in the hand. It is formed from warm toned bubinga. The tang locks into the wood handle with a unique mechanism resulting in one of the strongest and most durable handles found on any knife. Each knife is sent in a nice gift box.
