* As our Japanese kitchen knives are hand-made (most with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.

* Non stainless steel kitchen and chef knives require a small amount of care to prevent surface rust. Even though this rust can easily be removed, we recommend you hand wash and thoroughly dry after each use, do not use a dishwasher. For extended storage, coat in an oil like our Tsubaki.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Usuba (Vegetable Knife)

Usuba knives are a specialist Japanese vegetable knife somewhat like their Nakiri knife cousins. They differ in their edge geometry, with the traditional Japanese Usuba being a single bevel grind. It's worth noting that you need to choose a left hand or right hand grind, depending on your preference.
Usuba knives have a flat profile which aids in push chopping but does make rock style cutting a little uncomfortable. Chefs that cook with vegetables often really appreciate this style, quite specialised but it excels in this cooking arena.
