Exclusive to The Japanese Shop, the Yoshihiro Usuba Bocho Japanese Knife 160mm is a superb quality Japanese kitchen knife. It has been made from stain resistant Damascus steel with a super smooth mahogany wood handle. For knife aficionados the blade has a hardness Rockwell C scale of 57. Usuba, which means thin blade, has been sharpened on one side, a style known as kataba in Japanese which allows for the cutting of thinner slices but requires more skill to use. These Japanese kitchen knives have a beautiful wood grain effect on the blade called senbon kurokaki, which means one in a thousand black persimmon trees, regarded as the most valuable wood and were presented to Japanese emperors in ancient times. The Yoshihiro Usuba Bocho Japanese Knife 160mm is an ideal Japanese gift for an enthusiastic amateur or professional chef!

FREE Japanese style Gift-Wrapping!
In Japan the presentation of your gift is almost as important as the gift itself so in true Japanese style we can offer you a FREE gift-wrapping service! We wrap your gifts using a special Japanese textured paper to which we then affix either a small origami crane bird (which represents love and peace in Japan) or a mizuhiki (coloured wire) motif.
If you would like your order gift-wrapped please remember to select the Gift-Wrapping option from the drop down box on the product page when placing your order, if you do not select this option we will assume that you do not require gift-wrapping.
