The Kikuichi 7″ Usuba White Carbon Vegetable Knife is a hand forged and traditionally-shaped Japanese knife made in Sakai, Japan. The Usuba is crafted from white carbon steel (or Shiroko steel) and is essentially the most desired subject material for traditional Japanese knives. Whilst these blades can rust if now not properly maintained, the knives constituted of this metal can aquire a actually razor-like edge that resharpens easily. The literal translation of usuba is “thin blade” and its incredibly thin and sharp blade design helps it slice through vegetables without breaking down their cell walls, which ends up in discoloration, bruising and decrease in flavor. This 7″ Usuba White Carbon Vegetable Knife is made with a one sided bevel edge that rounds up on the flat end. It has a full tang with traditional “D” take care of and ebony bolster. Kikuichi backs all of its blades with an entire life guarantee against defects. Handwash only.
