Single bevel carbon steel Japanese vegetable usuba with polished finish and wood handle. Made in Sanjo, Japan.

Shirogami, or white steel, which is a very fine grained carbon steel made from low contaminate iron. It's loved for its ease of sharpening and ability to take a very fine, razor sharp edge.

Tojiro was founded in 1953 in Niigata and have been making affordable, high-quality knives ever since. They are one of the largest knife makers in Japan. They utilize a variety of steels in their knives, stainless and carbon, and both traditional Japanese knives and Western style double bevel knives are available.

*Carbon steel will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. Do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
