Shun - Knife, Usuba 6 1/2" "Classic Pro Collection" - VG0007

    The usuba is the quintessential Japanese vegetable knife. With its flat blade and squared-off tip, it is perfect for push/pull vegetable chopping. The straight edge cleanly contacts the cutting board so there is no need for the rocking cut used with a chef's knife. Since the entire blade contacts the board, there is much less chance for "accordion" vegetables—where the vegetable slices are still connected at the bottom because the knife hasn't quite cut all the way through.

  • Shun Classic Pro Series 6 1/2" Usuba knife with stainless steel bolsters and end caps
  • Features single-sided, 16° beveled edge for less sticking and less damage to food
  • VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon, and Vanadium with a Rockwell Hardness rating of 61
  • Traditional Japanese blade shape
  • Beautifully etched blade
  • The handle's "D" shape design fits the hand to perfection
  • Ergonomic ambidextrous ebony PakkaWood handle
  • Dishwasher safe.
