About Korin 8A 
Korin’s traditional Japanese 8A knives are made of 8A Austrian stain resistant steel and a magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster. The 8A steel is a high quality steel with rust-resistant properties, making it ideal for busy chefs and beginners. They are easier to maintain than carbon steel knives and have a longer edge retention.

Purpose of Usuba 
The usuba is a traditional Japanese style knife designed to cut vegetables. Japanese cuisine stresses the importance and beauty of seasonal ingredients, referred to as `shun.’ The literal translation of usuba is `thin blade.’ Without this incredibly sharp and thin blade, the knife would break down the cell walls of vegetables, causing ingredients to discolor and decrease in flavor. Originated in Kanto (Tokyo) region.
Left-handed knives are not available for this line.
