The long elegant lines of this 300mm sujihiki are beautifully complemented by the rustic, characterful aesthetic of the Masakage Yuki lineup. Functionally, the Shirogami #2 carbon steel core gives this knife the ability to take any edge, optimized for any task in the kitchen, while the stainless steel cladding makes upkeep a breeze. This knife is crafted by Hiroshi Kato in Takefu Village. Mr. Kato has over 50 years of experience making cutlery. While reactivity is greatly minimized by the stainless steel cladding, the carbon core on this knife will patina during normal use and could rust if neglected.
