Masakage Kumo knives are perennial favorites here at CKTG. Combining great looks, first rate materials, and excellent fit and finish, Masakage Kumo knives represent a perfect balance of price and performance for both home and professional chefs.

This range of kitchen knives is made by renowned blacksmith Katsushige Anryu. He lends his name to the Anryu brand as well as making blades for Masakage in their Kumo and Mizu lines. He has been forging high quality knives for almost 60 years from his shop in the famed Takefu Village, home of some of the world’s best blacksmiths and knife makers.

Masakage Kumo knives are made from VG-10 stainless steel which is particularly liked for its great edge-taking and -holding characteristics. VG-10 has a high carbon content of 1% plus trace elements including chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, cobalt, and manganese. The steel was first created by the Takefu Special Steel Company and is undoubtedly one of the most popular stainless steels used in the making of kitchen cutlery.

The VG-10 core is clad with a multi-layer soft stainless steel which, after grinding and etching, reveals a stunning damascus pattern that reminds blacksmith Anryu-san of clouds. Thus the name, Kumo (clouds in Japanese). The blade is mated to a finely crafted handle made from rosewood with a pakka wood ferrule.
