Battle bamboo shoot. The challenger from Kyoto used a huge usuba to do katsuramuki. very impressive, he held the bevel side of the knife against the shoot. I would have thought that the hollow side would be against the product. Chen just chops away with his cleaver, then does this intricate detail work with it.

Nah, bevel side is always down. Otherwise it would just dig in. Works like a chisel.
Nice deba work too.
