Shun Pro Usuba Knife

Staying true to its Asian origins, the Shun Pro collection features the classic single-bevel blades and styling that define traditional Japanese cutlery. Designed primarily for the preparation of vegetables, the usuba is thin and light for quick chopping with less fatigue. The nearly straight edge of the usuba makes effortless contact with a cutting board for precision cutting. The traditional single-bevel, scalpel-like edge is the favored style for preparing Asian cuisine, including sushi and sashimi. The mirror-polished, ultra sharp cutting edge ensures the blade glides through delicate foods without bruising or tearing to retain maximum flavor. Graffiti etching on the blade's sides give this collection an elegant, contemporary look. The blade is constructed of high-carbon VG-10 "super steel" designed for maximum strength and edge retention. Premium D-shaped PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably into the curves of the palm, offering control and a secure grip. An extra-wide "shinogi," or blade bevel, makes sharpening with whetstone nearly effortless. Shun knives reflect the craftsmanship of a centuries-old tradition of Japanese knifemaking, with an eye towards the latest innovations in cutlery design. Handcrafted in Japan.
