Masakage Koishi knives are hand made by Kato san out of Aogami Super Steel. This steel is highly prized in the world of cutlery for its ability to take and hold very sharp edges. The knives feature cherry wood wa handles with black pakka ferrules. They also have the Koishi (meaning pebble) finish which are dimpled hammer marks that help the knives cut through ingredients without sticking.

The 170mm bunka is similar to a santoku in its size and versatility. It offers a very thin tip that glides through food and a slightly curved belly that excels at all forms of cutting, be it push cuts, slicing, or rocking. Hardened to around 64 Rockwell, these knives have excellent edge retention.

    5  Product Review, April 8, 2014
    Posted By: Dylan - verified customer

    What a dream this knife is! Wonderfully crafted and functional blade. As you might expect, this knife has it's limitations. It definetly excels at vegtable prep, but because of its length won't be great for slicing or fabricating proteins. If you are looking for a more multipurpose knife, a gyuto is your best bet. Very pleased with the steel and would definetly recommend adding this knife to your collection!
