The Usuba - vegetable knife

The Usuba is ideal for cutting foods such as vegetables and fruit, which are served raw. The thin and sharp blade ensures a cut surface with very little cell damage, minimising discolouration and flavour change often caused by oxidation. The relatively wide and long blade makes the Usuba ideal for cutting large ingredients such as cabbage, but it is not recommended for cutting vegetables or fruit with hard skins or hard stones, as they can damage the blade. The Usuba knife makes clean cuts while preserving the natural freshness, flavour and texture of the vegetables. For home cooks, Usuba knives in lengths of 180 mm to 210 mm are suitable.
