Minosuke Matsuzawa, the founder of the Masamoto Sohonten Company, started making knives in 1845. It was his dream that his family would come to be "remembered as knife craftsmen throughout the generations." Now, six generations later, Matsuzawa's vision has been realized and professionally crafted Masamoto knives have become known as the best knifes in Japan and are widely regarded as some of the finest knives made for use by professional chefs worldwide. Masamoto's new Western-style line are made of a proprietary alloy called Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium. It is a high-carbon stainless steel with added cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium. These knives are extremely hard, sharp, and stain-resistant. The blades are hardened to an HRC of 58-59 and sharpened to a 70/30 bevel.

The mid sized Gyuto is a real jack of all trades in the kitchen and this particular version of the ubiquitous knife possesses a nice balance and fast cutting action. This is a great rendition of east meets west. The Yo handle is constructed from a composite material know as Duracon, which posses great stability and is anti-bacterial. The Japanese style blade is light and more nimble than itís European and American counterparts. A really nice, durable and easy to use knife for all kinds of uses and users.

    The Japanese, of japanese knives. Perfect size, great balance and ergonomics, this is everything you need in a professional knife. Pretty much on par with the greatest, if not THE greatest gyuto you can ever own. Fast shipping( only took two days). Purchased the universal saya to go with it, fits perfectly! CKTG has most certainly the best customer service, responded well to all my questions with quick reply. I most certainly look forward to my next purchase at this site.
    Thanks Mark!

    Masamoto chef knife has a great balance and good sharp edge. The only down side is the handle which I think is poorly made and finished. I can see grind marks on the sides and bottom of the handle.
