Kichiji Kasumi Kamagata Usuba 195mm Rose Wood Handle
This is the Kansai style of Usuba, the name literally means “thin edge” as this shape is particularly thin behind the edge to facilitate exceptionally fine vegetable preparation. Hammer forged in Yasuki Kigami clad with soft iron with a rosewood handle. Yasuki Kigami is similar to Shirogami 2, its fine grain structure and minimal alloying mean it will take a very smooth edge easily whilst retaining it well. This knife is made in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, renowned to produce single bevel cutlery.
