White Steel #2 Magnolia Round Handle with Buffalo horn bolster

Usuba Knife

Usuba is widely used for all kinds of vegetables such as peeling, chopping, dividing, and shaving.The Edo-usuba knife is a type commonly used in the Kanto region, with a square blade and a rounded cutting edge.The blade is square and the cutting edge is rounded, so it is less likely to pierce the cutting board, and it is also safer when placing vegetables in a pot. Most professionals use around 210mm.For home use, people use double-edged vegetable knives called "Nakiri" instead of Usuba knives.

White Steel #2

Steel Material
This classic knife is forged from Yasugi white steel (Shirko#2), the standard of knife steel.
It sharpens easily and slices beautifully. White steel is a type of high purity steel from which impurities have been removed.

Magnolia Round Handle with Buffalo horn bolster

Handle
Wood of the deciduous tall Magnoliaceae tree that is grown in forests around Japan is used to craft the handle.Being light and soft, this type of wood can be processed very easily.
Besides being used to produce knife handles and sheath, Magnoliaceae wood is also widely used as a material for sculpture, lacquerware, furniture, musical instrument and more.
The cap of handle is made of natural buffalo horns (and yet no killing is required to procure the horns), and it is carefully hand-polished until makes no gaps between the wood and the cap, and the unique grain of the wood will naturally grow more comfortable in your hand as you use it.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.

It has been 600 years since craftsmen began making swords in Sakai, Japan.
This technology has been passed down to the present day and has fostered Japan's food culture. This is where the culture of completing a dish of sashimi by "just cutting" and the culture of expressing sharpness as "taste" was born.
For 70 years, we have been connecting the spirit of Sakai's craftsmen with the passion of chefs in Osaka's kitchen equipment shopping district, known as the kitchen of Japan.
We are very happy that our knives can be used by people all over the world.
