Tamahagane San 6-inch usuba knife: This classic Japanese blade shape is designed for cutting vegetables. The Japanese symbol "San" means brilliant and radiant in English, and these knives will shine brightly in any kitchen. The hard core is cushioned by the outside layers of SUS410 steel, which have a Rockwell hardness of 28-32. The optimal sharpening angle is 14-15 degrees. The eye catching handle is distinctive yet classic.

This is a Nakiri. The box is labelled Nakiri, it is clearly double beveled, and the enclosed marketing brochure shows the entire line of Tamahagane knives, and they don't MAKE a usuba bocha.
I strongly advise anyone shopping for an exotic, high-end asian blade to buy in person from a reputable dealer where you can try the blade.
I will never buy a high quality knife from Amazon again, as the subtle distinctions and customer service have been a nightmare.
When I buy a hand forged, high carbon, several hundred dollar knife it will never be from Amazon; I received my first usuba from Amazon Christmas of 2010. Now, in November of 2011, I finally got my money back for the flawed blade and have a cheap usuba to play around with.
I have resigned myself to cheap, mislabeled Nakiri (Yes, there is a $38 'nakiri' for sale by Amazon that is actually a decent stainless steel usuba, I assume it is mislabeled for export).
