The Messermeister Mu Bamboo 7" Usuba Knife is a traditional Japanese style knife that's specifically designed to make paper thin slices in vegetables. The wide, ultra-thin blade utilizes an elongated taper to create its razor sharp single bevel edge, which is blunted at the end by its distinctly rounded tip. Although similar in style to a vegetable cleaver, it's typically used like a paring knife, where the produce is held in one hand and cut in the air by the other. Also available in a linen textured resin handle in the Mu Fusion 7" Usuba Knife.
Expertly crafted in Seki, Japan, Messermeister's Mu Bamboo line is where Japanese design meets German craftsmanship. Featuring a fully stamped high carbon, molybdenum vanadium steel blade and impressively sharp 15-degree precision edge, Messermeister's Mu Bamboo exudes a powerful elegance that you will cherish for years to come. In staying with Japanese tradition, the blade is tempered to 58 rockwell—harder than Messermeister's German masterpieces—and maintains the sleek, bolsterless design that you've come to know and love. Capped with an environmentally friendly bamboo handle, these knives marry the best of both cultures, so you truly can have your cake and eat it, too.
