Description:

Hideo Kitaoka san is a master at his art. He specialises in single bevel knives and is based in Takafu knife village. He uses traditional steels and White number 2 is an excellent choice for these handmade knives.

The blade is ground on the front side and concave on the other. This chisel grind gives it a dramatically steeper angle geometry than dual ground knives and thus makes is sharper.

  • The shorter length makes it easy to handle especially peeling a daikon.
  • The knife is finished with a traditional ho wood handle and a plastic ferule.
  • The Usuba is a single bevel vegetable knife used in Japan to make the finest vegetable garnishes.
