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.
