MMDN1002: Asian Precision 7" Usuba Knife
Messermeister crafts blades in Seki, Japan with the same high standards used in Solingen, Germany. High quality steel alloys are attatched to the very finest handle materials and the edges are ground to the traditional Japanese razor edge.
The Messermeister Asian Precision 7" Usuba Knife is a broad bladed single edge blade with a distinctively curved tip or a blunt tip and looks like a vegetable cleaver. The usual blade length is 7" and it is traditionally used like a paring knife by holding it in the air and cutting the item being held by the other hand.
- The single edge blade is used mainly to cut vegetables such as Daikon and Cucumber into paper thin slices and is so sharp it can thin peel in a continuous strip (katsura-muki) a Tsuma, a Japanese radish which is served with sashimi.
