Yu Kurosaki makes some of our most popular knives. His abilities with a wide variety of steels and finishes is quite amazing as witnessed in this lovely santoku. Masakage Shimo blades are made with White #2 steel as the core. They are then clad with a soft iron Damascus hammered to resemble frost patterns on windows during the winter. It should be noted that both the core steel and the cladding are reactive. In fact, the iron cladding on these blades is some of the more reactive on our site. These knives should be kept dry and wiped clean even during use.

The santoku is a multi-purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. Santoku means “three virtues” or “to solve three problems.” The virtues or problems are slicing, dicing, and mincing. They are becoming more and more popular in Western kitchens due to the unique shape and smaller, easy to handle size. These knives are begging to be used for chopping and push-and-pull cutting.

Fairly light in weight, the knife is nonetheless able to handle just about any ingredient put in front of it. The symmetrical convex grind and blade geometry on all of Kurosaki knives are really the stars of the show. Ultra-thin behind the edge, the final grind blends seamlessly with a generous convex section in the middle. While not lasers, these knives slide through soft and hard produce with equal ease making them tremendous performers in a broad range of applications.

    This knife was put together extremely well. Handle was mated nicely with the blade and no gaps in the handle. Balance works more towards a pinch grip and is extremely light and controllable. I am not sure about the out of the box blade sharpness since I purchased mine with a CKTG finish sharpening. Sharpening was amazingly done by Mark. I would by the other Kurosaki Knives ->Masakage Shimo knives in a heart beat.
