Made from mono steel VG1 stainless with rosewood handle. These knives have all the merits of a classic stainless mono steel but with better edge formation and easier sharpening. An excellent cutting feel thanks to the fine, convex hamaguri grinds.

Done at the workshop involved in the old Masakane production in Seki.

This steel can be somewhat prone to chipping if mistreated, but we think the return in ease of sharpening and cutting feel is worth it. These are a great take on the classic stainless western handled Japanese knife.

This is a stainless steel knife. It should be hand washed and towel dried. Habitual dishwasher use will result in degraded edge and handle. Consistent long term exposure to moisture can lead to oxidation.

Twisting, scraping and heavy use as well as use on hard and very dense objects can lead to edge damage. Using a quality wooden cutting board will keep a sharper edge for longer. Materials like glass, ceramic and bamboo should be avoided and will make the edge go dull quickly.

We recommend hand sharpening on whetstones. We have found that most Japanese knives perform best at a finer finish starting around 4000 grit. Avoid pull through sharpeners and non-water cooled mechanized sharpening. Ceramic honing rods are preferred.
