Masakage Yuki knives are handmade using Shirogami #2 (White #2) carbon steel clad with stainless steel. The knives are hardened to HRC 62:63. They come with an Oval handle of Magnolia wood and red pakka wood. Cladding a knife with stainless steel on the outside gives you the benefit of easy care while the exposed core carbon steel cutting edge gives you great performance.
Picked one of these up last week,by far my favourite knife out of my collection right now. slices through almost all veggies without any effort and its very light! so glad i bought it,worth every penny.
