Kitchen knife Osaka Usuba Knife 3 CLAVELES is made based on the Japanese kitchen knife Nakiri. Japanese kitchen knives Nakiri and Usuba, specific in their appearance, emphasize the exotic charm of the kitchen interior, and if you want a whole set of Japanese knives to settle in your kitchen, then you can’t do without the original Nakiri and Usuba knives. As a rule, knives of this configuration are bought second after the main one - Santoku, Gyuto or Petty, whoever chooses what for themselves.
Actually, Nakiri and Usuba are different knives and in Japanese cuisine they perform not only different tasks from each other, but are also used by different specialists. The heavier and wider Usuba in the butt, with one-sided sharpening is used mainly for decorating tasks in professional kitchens, and the Nakiri with a very thin blade and very long double-sided descents at an extremely low angle (sometimes up to 5 degrees) is used mainly in household for home use. The only thing that these two knives have in common is the rectangular blade and the fact that both of them are designed to work on vegetables. The rectangular blade of these knives allows it to be used as a makeshift spatula for moving chopped vegetables. In the interpretation for the European market, a certain average version of this knife is produced, which is most often called Yusuba, like the Osaka Usuba Knife knife from 3 CLAVELES. The wide shank of the Osaka Usuba Knife allows you to easily adjust the thickness of the cut products safely resting on the blade with your knuckles, cut products with great comfort and eliminates the contact of the hand on the knife handle with the table surface.
The Osaka Usuba Knife 3 CLAVELES bolster of the knife is stylized as a classic Japanese knife, but made of stainless steel, it is quite massive, which improves the balance of the knife as a whole and gives the whole structure a pleasant heaviness (knife weight 200 grams) and increases comfort in work. The overall balance of the knife is shifted to the blade, which makes it easier to work when cutting.
A distinctive feature of the Osaka Knife 3 CLAVELES series of kitchen knives is the presence of a forged structure of the knife bark, the so-called “pear skin”. The forged bumps on the blades are the result of a technique that gives the blade its original look, making the surface of the blade look a bit unfinished and even rustic. But therein lies the charm of the appearance of this blade. However, in addition to the visual effect, such a surface, by creating air cushions on the skin, prevents cut products (for example, hard cheeses) from sticking to the surface of the knife.
