The classic Japanese single bevel blade on this new style Shun Pro 6.5 in. Usuba or Nakiri delivers perfect precision. The Usuba has been commonly used in Japanese households since the old days. This Shun Pro Usuba is perfect for peeling, chopping and slicing vegetables because of its thin blade. The New Style Shun Pro features a beautiful, graffiti etched blade that is made with high carbon VG10 steel, which takes and holds an incredibly sharp edge longer than comparable knives. Premium D-shaped PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably into the curves of the palm, offering control and a secure grip. The wide Shinogi (or blade bevel) makes it easy to sharpen these knives on a whetsone.
