Jyosaku Kamagata Usaba Knife with a 195mm blade.

This is a knife for right handed use.

These Sakai made Usaba knives are forged out of white paper (Shirogami) carbon  steel. It is a very traditional Japanese way of making knives.

Yamawaki Hamono was established in 1927 with a long history of making knives in the traditional Sakai way. Most knives are single bevel type.

The blade has nice polished edges and is a very usable knife for a professional environment.

The octagon shape handle is made from Ichii Wood with a Buffalo Horn ferrule.

The Kamagata Usaba is a Japanese traditional vegetable knife, similar to a Nakiri but with a pointed tip and a straight edge.

We recommend to clean and dry the knives after use and also use a bit of tsubaki oil to protect the blade.
