Usuba(Kanto) White steel #2 Kasumi Buffalo Magnolia Handle 180mm

H085

Regular price¥23,800
/
The Usuba is ideal for cutting vegetables and fruits which are served raw, because the thin and sharp blade produces cut surfaces with very little cell damage, and this minimizes the discoloration and change in flavor often caused by oxidation. The versatile middle section of the blade can be used for thinly slicing vegetables and also for performing the specialized Katsuramuki ("Rotary peeling”) technique.

Shirogami No.2 has minimal impurities and a very fine grain structure, so it is ideal for fine cutting tools such as Japanese traditional-style knives. Despite being a ‘simple’ carbon steel, Shirogami No.2 has very good edge retention and it is also very easy to re-sharpen. Recommended for first-time users of Japanese traditional-style knives.

Traditional Kasumi polished finish. Kasumi roughly translated to “mist” or “cloud” and refers to the hazy appearance of the soft steel/iron cladding, in contrast to the fine polished cutting edge. This elegant finish is very common on traditional style Japanese blades.

At first, I was surprised by the aesthetic beauty that goes far beyond what is proposed in photo: a true work of art. Then, there was the pleasure of using it, the perception of solidity that conveys a feeling of safety and reliability combined with ease and precision of cut.
I really love this knife.
Received very quickly with a perfect packaging.

Great knife for those with larger than usual hands with both a longer handle and taller blade then the typical Nakiri, it’s a pleasure to use.

Perfect !

I own multiple beautiful knives purchased over many years from musashihamono and each time i wonder if the new one could possibly surpass the existing. They are works of art with exquisite workmanship and literally effortless sharpening to a fine edge. This magnificent Nakiri is now our favourite fortis incredible balance and weight that allows thé took to do all of the work. It’s the first time I’ve owned a vegetable knife as such and I’m blown away. Why did I wait so long. Beautiful to look at and effortless to use and maintain. Get yourself one of these - highly recommend !

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
