* As our kitchen knives are hand-made (some 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 can easily be removed if it does occur, 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 much like their Nakiri knife cousins. They do differ however 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.
