The Chroma Haiku Kurouchi Yasai-Giri Usuba Knife is a traditional vegetable knife for cutting through firm vegetables without cracking them. Usuba also known as "thin blade" features a square shape blade, making it appear like a small meat cleaver. The Chroma Haiku Kurouchi series is translated from the Japanese word "Kurouchi" known as "black forged". Made in Tosa, a region of Southern Japan, well known for its long tradition of cutlery, also for its rugged, wild and furrowed landscape, which is reflected in the Kurouchi blade. The blade get it's appearance from a layer of oxides that naturally form on the surface of the metal during forging, hardening, and tempering process. The blade is then left unpolished, giving it a characteristic look, with corrosion resistance. The blade core is of AOKO blue edge steel, supported on both sides by strong wrought iron. The blade is firmly secured by a glazed black magnolia hardwood handle, secured with a stainless steel bolster and Mekugi pin. Made in Japan.
