  • Widely considered to be one of the three most presitigious knife makers in all of Japan, the Masahiro Company creates knives with professional-level performance in mind. Each blade is crafted of Masahiro’s proprietary steel, which undergoes a multi-stage process of quenching, sub-zero treating and tempering to achieve the optimum balance of strength and flexibility. The blade is ground asymmetrically, allowing for a thinner cutting edge and unmatched sharpness.

    • Ideal for slicing and chopping fresh produce and meat.
    • Special indentations along the blade’s sides reduce sticking and allow cut food to release more easily.
    • Blade is forged of Masahiro’s proprietary MBS-26 high-carbon steel with a Rockwell rating of 59 HRC, representing the ideal mix of hardness and flexibility for a kitchen knife.
    • Edge is ground at 80% on the right and 20% on the left to allow for a thinner, sharper edge than standard symmetrically ground blades.
    • Mirror-polished by hand for a beautiful finish.
    • Full-tang construction adds balance and control.
    • Lightweight yet durable resin handle is hygienic and moisture resistant.
    • 7" blade; 4 3/4" handle; 5.2 oz.
    • Made in Japan.
