Yu Kurosaki was commissioned to produce the Masakage Shimo series. Kurosaki operates out of Takefu Village and is currently producing some very high quality, handcrafted knives. Kurosakiís knives are characterized by wonderfully convex grinds that get laser thin behind the edge and profiles that sport quite long flat sections with moderate belly at the tip. He is also very, very skilled in his treatment of steel. In the case of the Shimo, Kurosaki is working with Shirogami #2 and he does a remarkable job with this core steel. The edge is capable of very high levels of sharpness and refinement and can be taken to steep angles without losing integrity or becoming chippy. The core steel is wrapped in a reactive iron Damascus cladding, which is one of the more attractive finishes we have seen. Kurosaki developed a custom hammer to create the effect which is meant to evoke frost as it appears on a window during winter. Fit and finish is quite high on these knives and like all Masakages, come very sharp out of the box.

While the knife is considered to be one of the more reactive iron clad blades on our site, this becomes less of an issue with this 270mm Sujihiki. While the knife can appropriately be used for veggie prep, its primary purpose is for slicing proteins and some fillet work. Given that, the blade should stay relatively pristine and take on an attractive patina if cared for properly.
