Masakage Shimo knives are handcrafted by Yu Kurosaki, an excellent young smith working out of Takefu Village. These knives are forged using White #2 steel which has received excellent treatment by the smith. The Shirogami #2 is wrapped with an iron Damascus cladding and is quite reactive, so due care should be taken during and after use to keep the blade dry and acid free. Edge retention is superb, the core steel is very easy to sharpen and can take and hold high levels of refinement on the stones.

The Shimo 240mm gyuto is a lighter middleweight knife with excellent blade geometry and a nice flat edge profile. Fit and finish is very good and the handles are done in unstabilized Magnolia wood. These knives are truly excellent all-around athletes and are a dream to cut with through even the toughest of ingredients.
