Masamoto Hon-Kasumi Shirogami Steel Sakimaru Takohiki
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 Sakimaru Takohiki is one type of sashimi knife, serving a similar purpose. Its appearance closely resembles traditional Japanese Katana, with a sharp tip and blade. However, the back of the blade is straight, akin to the Takohiki style Yanagi, hence it is also referred to "Sakimaru Takohiki."
Founded by the first generation "Minosuke Matsuzawa" in the late Edo period, Masamoto Knives have been dedicated to honing the art of culinary knife craftsmanship through six generations of effort.
Since its inception, Masamoto has tirelessly pursued excellence in both technical skill and consistent product management—a legacy established by the founder.
