Description

The Messermeister Asian Precision 7" Usuba Knife is a broad bladed single edge blade with a distinctively curved, flat tip and looks like a cleaver. Usuba knives are traditional Japanese vegetable knives. The word Usuba means "thin blade", which is perfect for cutting vegetables without cracking or breaking them. The 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.

  • One-piece, fully stamped
  • Ergonomic balance
  • Full tang
  • 3 Rivet construction
  • Paper pakkawood composite handle
  • 57-58 Rockwell
  • Made in Seki, Japan

Usage

  • 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.

Asian Precision is Messermeister's traditional Japanese knife line manufactured in Seki. The Rockwell hardness of the Asian Precision series is 57-58. This is slightly harder than Messermeister's German cutlery, staying with Japanese cutlery tradition.
