Nenohi Kasumi White Kamagata Usuba 210mm Ho Wood Handle
*Minor pitting, email us for detailed photos!
A Kamagata usuba is a variation of the traditional usuba, a Japanese single-sided blade that is designed mainly for rotary peeling (‘katsuramuki’ in Japanese) various vegetables. Originating from the Kansai (Osaka) region, the Kamagata usuba’s rounded tip helps with more delicate work and decorative cutting, while the extremely thin edge allows for precise cuts that preserve the integrity and texture of vegetables. We recommend an usuba for any professional cooks working in restaurants requiring specific knife skills such as katsuramuki and preparation of vegetable garnishes.
