Masutani is a small blacksmith shop located in Echizen in the Fukui Prefecture. We have just started stocking these knives and we could not be more pleased with the price/performance quotient they deliver.

The knives are made from VG1 stainless steel which has achieved the four major requirements for knives: (1) high hardness, (2) high toughness, (3) high wear resistance, and (4) high corrosion resistance, making it suitable for a wide range of uses, including kitchen knives and hair cutting shears.

      Lightweight, comfortable, maybe small QC issues, April 20, 2022
    Posted By: Brandon

    I had originally gotten this knife for my significant other, as her hands are too small to comfortably grip most of my other larger knives (and VG1 stainless for lower maintenance). In that regard, this knife is lightweight and well-balanced, and very comfortable to handle in both a pinch grip as well as pointed grip - even for someone wtih larger hands.
    Visually, the pattern on the blade is also quite appealing (although not quite as striking as in the image; not to mention this is purely subjective).
    My only complaint would be that the choil appears to have been ground unevenly, as it has a very obvious ridge all the way from the handle to cutting edge. It also has a couple of oblong darker spots than the surrounding metal that I haven't been able to scrub/sand/polish off. This hasn't noticeably affected the knife's performance in the month or so that I've been using it, but still seems like an imperfection worth mentioning.
