Masamoto Hon-Kasumi Shirogami Steel Deba Urushi Saya
Handle: Sea Snail shell on Roiro Urushi octagonal handle with Nashiji nuri finish
This product comes with a black lacquered Saya.
The Masamoto KS series kitchen knives use Japanese Shirogami steel (HRC 62-63) as the core, forged with soft iron. The super high sharpness and toughness of Shirogami steel (white steel) create a blade that is both incredibly sharp and durable, while also easy to sharpen. These features make this series ideal for professionals who prefer to keep their knives at an exceptionally sharp edge.
The base of the blade is thicker, while the tip is thin and sharp, allowing for smooth dismantling and cutting of various fish, poultry, and meat. The lower quarter of the blade can be used for chopping, pounding ingredients, or breaking bones, while the upper sixth is for delicate work, primarily used for filleting fish and separating various parts of ingredients. Additionally, the design of the blade allows for efficient separation of fish meat from bones when breaking down fish, minimizing residue on the bones.
We highly recommend the Urushi collection to enthusiasts who appreciate Japanese craftsmanship and seek a quality lifestyle!
