Hitohira Kikuchiyo Manzo White #3 Usuba 180mm Ho Wood Handle (D-Shape)
This product is currently sold out.
An Usuba is a traditional Japanese single-sided blade that is designed mainly for rotary peeling (‘katsuramuki’ in Japanese) various vegetables. Once peeled into thin sheets, the vegetables can be cut into micro-julienne strips that can serve as a bed for the main ingredients of the dish, such as sashimi slices on a bed of daikon. We recommend an usuba for any professional cooks working in a Japanese style restaurant, looking to perfect the art of katsuramuki and preparing vegetable garnishes.
