If you are looking for a great knife to get you into the world of Japanese kitchen knives, or seeking that perfect gift for a student chef or enthusiast home chef, look no further. Masutani knives are made using some of the very best stainless steel and damascus steel combinations. They are laser cut from pre forged sheets. We are most impressed with the well-executed grinds and edges. The blade is very easy to maintain on a daily basis and it will sharpen up with relative ease. VG10 holds its edge really well, so this will not be a requirement needing attention very often.

The nakiri that we are featuring here is pretty standard fare as far as overall dimensions go. They are naturally thin knives, created to perfectly slice through vegetables and fruits of all hardnesses. It has an average length blade at 165mm and occupies the midpoint of the scale in terms of height.

The very attractive damascus finish is enhanced by the black pakka wood western-style one-piece handle. It is well made and, together with the nicely formed bolster and stainless pins, presents a picture of subdued quality. It is an easy to use and maintain knife, and quite a remarkable achievement given its competitive price.

    If you use pinch grip this nakiri is perfect. If you have bigger hands the height will be a bit awkward. After spending 10 min on the whetstone this retains an amazing edge. Best bang for the $. Five stars!

      Beautiful Knife!, March 6, 2021
    Posted By: EK - verified customer

    Very happy with this knife. The slightly front-heavy balance is very comfortable and conducive to easy chopping. Absolutely beautiful cladding. Super light-weight and nimble. Very sharp and thin blade for precise and easy cuts. The handle is beautiful, much more-so in person than in pictures. I think a thicker handle would've been more comfortable, but it's still nice. Overall just feels like a great handmade knife, very high quality, and really enjoyable to use.

      Not bad for the money!, December 13, 2020
    Posted By: Adam - verified customer

    This is a solid, good little knife. You know you can spend three or four times as much, but this is a good little workhorse nonetheless.

    Packaging was standard yet attractive, suitable for gifting.
    The fit and finish has minor issues - gaps where the bolster meets the blade/tang, residue (maybe wood oil? Maybe a polishing compound?) around the handle rivets, rough edges here and there - all solved with some light filing and sanding. Not that you'd need to, but I had fun with it.
    Blade is very attractive, sharp enough out of the box and took a new edge well after a week of chopping root veggies.
    Overall I'm quite pleased for the money and would recommend it to anyone not looking to spend more than 100 bucks!

      Awesome Veggie Killer, September 25, 2020

    Really impressed with this knife, especially given the price point. Razor sharp out of the box, fit and finish are really good, and the performance is outstanding. Easy to care for and is a good looking blade as well. Highly recommend!
