An excellent knife designed for cutting Japanese noodles. The blade is made of a single piece of stainless molybdenum/vanadium steel. Its large and heavy blade is excellent for cutting soba or udon long flat noodles. The knife has a traditional Japanese Magnolia handle.
It has a long, straight cutting edge designed to cut stacked sheets of noodle dough into thin, even strips in the blink of an eye. To facilitate cutting through the soft dough in a single downward stroke the knife is designed with the handle near the center.
Soba is the Japanese name for buckwheat but this name usually refers to thin noodles made from buckwheat flour. Have you tried them? One of our favorite Japanese specialties!
