Sakai Takayuki Kamagata Usuba Knife, Uzushio, 195mm / 7.7"

Not rated yet

Very thick and strong and yet very sharp heavy duty traditional Japanese carbon steel Kamagata-style usuba vegetable knife. This style of usuba is perhaps more useful than the commonly-seen usuba since it has a pointed tip (more like a santoku) whereas the other style has a rounded tip. Ever wondered how they get those veggies paper-thin in sushi shops? This is the tool to use. Again, search on "usuba" on Youtube for some good examples of this style of knife being used. This model features a core of Hitachi Yasugi-works white-2 carbon steel (NOT stainless) for spectacular performance, and this core is clad in absolutely stunning 16-layer iron/steel layered ("Damascus") metal for strength and beauty. A professional-grade tool for the working chef or serious enthusiast or collector. Forged and finished by hand in Japan with expert precision by life-long craftsmen. This is a great opportunity to get a REAL Japanese knife handmade by real Japanese master craftsmen -- these are NOT assembly-line factory made knives! Own a piece of history as this ancient art is slowly becoming lost to robots and factories and cheap/low-end assembly and materials. Features a very hard and high quality white-2 high carbon steel, real wooden handle, and a beautiful natural horn bolster. Note: the colour of the horn bolster may vary from the photo... it's a natural material with variations from dark to light, and with varying levels of colours and patterns sometimes even within the same piece. Again, this is CARBON steel, NOT stainless, so you must know how to care of it and keep it away from acidic foods that can stain or discolour it, and keep it away from excess humidity to avoid rusting. Of course it's for right-hand use only (sharpened only on the right side), and requires good maintenance and care for a lifetime or service. It's not rocket science to care for a knife, but a knife like this, like a high performance sports car, does require more care than your standard German stainless steel and plastic chef's knife!
