Shun Edo Single Bevel Usuba Knife

Details
Shun Edo's reputation for superior power and control is reflected in the extraordinary appearance of their cutlery. The VG-10 steel blade's eye-catching hammered pattern reduces drag and helps food release easily, and the handle's tear-drop shape and broad bolster facilitate a variety of cutting techniques. Designed primarily for the preparation of vegetables, the usuba is thin and light for quick chopping with less fatigue.
