Usuba is a single bevel vegetable knife. The sharp blade can slice vegetables in paper thin sheets and can also make decorative garnish. Since the blade has only single bevel, you need to be careful not to cut through the ingredients narrow when cutting straight down. "Azumagata" is a type of Usuba which is mainly used in Kanto region (Eastern Japan) and the wide square blade is suitable for chopping.
Shirogami No.2 carbon steel has a good balance of retention of the edge and easiness to sharpen.

- NOT dishwasher safe
- To prevent rust, thoroughly wipe the knife after washing.
- Apply a thin layer of oil on the blade before storing to protect it from humidity and make it more rust resistant.
- Please read the instruction before usage.

Yes, but for online orders, we offer a free engraving service for knives only. Please select the desired engraving option, enter text and add the knife to cart. Engraving for products other than knives is only available at our physical store at Kappabashi, Tokyo.

Most of the chipping can be repaired by re-sharpening the blade. We offer a fee-based knife sharpening service. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us using the inquiry form. Blades can chip by cutting hard ingredients such as bones, seeds or frozen food, dropping and mishandling, or stabbing into hard cutting boards.

All knives we handle can be repaired with the exception of knives that are severely damaged. Repairing chipping and removing rust will restore sharpness and allow you to use your knives for a longer period of time. We also offer a fee-based knife sharpening service.
Please note we may not be able to repair knives with unknown blade materials, such as knives purchased at other stores.
