Korin 8A Stain Resistant Usuba 7-Inch Vegetable Slicer

Out of stock
The Kamagata Usuba is a traditional Japanese knife used to cut or make thin sheets of vegetables. The literal translation of usuba is thin blade. The kamagata usuba has a pointed tip, which allows for more delicate work and decorative carving.

Korin's traditional Japanese 8A knives are made of 8A Austrian stain resistant steel and a magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster.
