Masutani knives are exceptional knives. We are thrilled to offer this brand that breaks through the price and performance barriers, delivering top-notch quality.
The Masutani Nakiri
is made with a VG1 stainless steel core, a high carbon and molybdenum steel comparable to AUS-8 and VG10. This steel offers a good balance of toughness and wear resistance. The blade is then clad with softer stainless steel with a beautiful hammered finish. The exquisite grinds reveal the VG1 cutting edge, giving the knife a stunning hamon-like appearance.
The knife boasts a wa-style handle made of morado wood which is elegant and smooth. Despite its budget-friendly price, the knife offers impressive performance. It's an excellent option for beginners and a great gift for home cooks and student chefs.
