We are very impressed with the knives that are appearing under the Makoto brand umbrella. Giving your own name to a brand can be a tricky thing, especially after having made knives for some for the best brands in the business. But the knives made by Makoto Kurosaki do justice to this bold decision.

Makoto Kurosaki has used SG2 to make this excellent santoku knife. His choice is a good one from the standpoint of ease of maintenance and durability. SG2 steel has an ability to feel rather carbon-like when forged by a good blacksmith. It has a very hard feel but is able to hold an edge over the long haul. It also has a high wear resistance as compared to other knife steels. However it is quite easy to sharpen, more so than any other stainless steel. The inner core is clad san-mai style with a soft stainless steel. It is given a very nice hairline finish.

Makoto is an expert sharpener and it is very apparent with this knife. The grind is exceptional, as is the overall thinness of this laser. It is thin but not wispy. In the santoku itineration it exhibits a very easy controllability while truly falling through food with an ease that is quite remarkable.

That this finely made package should come in at this price is the true icing on the cake. We highly recommend these knives.

    5  Excellent Product, September 10, 2020
    Posted By: Brandon Nelson - verified customer

    Fit and finish are top notch. Blade profile is fantastic, no issues at all. I bought this along with another dozen or so high handmade knives. Kurosaki's, Makoto's, Kato's, Jikko's, and a few others. I love this line and the simplicity of the blades without hand hammering etc.

    I did oil the handle and so far so good!
