Born in 1950, and shortly after learning his craft from his father in Takefu Village, Echizen City, Fukui Prefecture. Specializing in single-bevel knives and making most of his work from Shirogami, these knives take a wicked edge super quickly, and are not as brittle and some would assume Shirogami to be!

The Usuba is the single bevel equivalent of the Nakiri. Making quick work of veg prep and taking a scary sharp edge! Also the easiest single bevel shape to learn to sharpen. While in harder ingredients like potatos or carrots, when taking off larger pieces it may steer a little more than you could expect from a double beveled nakiri, they excel at taking off thin slices, sheeting, and fine juliennes with their wicked sharp edges. Fantastic for garnish work.

Knife Care (Iron Clad)

  • This Knife is made from 3 layers of material; A layer of iron on each side protecting a layer of carbon steel at the core, in a process referred to as Sanmai or forge welding. Iron and carbon steel are both susceptible to rust and must be kept dry and clean at all time’s to avoid oxidation and discolouration.
  • Simply wipe the knife with a damp cloth immediately after use.
  • Wash with regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Never put your knife in the dishwasher! The extreme heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Highly acidic ingredients (Onions, Tomatoes, Citrus) Will cause rust and oxidation to happen faster, thus the user must ensure the knife is wiped clean immediately after working with such an ingredient.
  • Should any rust form it can be removed using a rust eraser or a mixture of Baking soda and water to simply scrub it clean.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
