Yuki Santoku. Masakage knives are made by the great Hiroshi Kato. This well respected blade master is one of the founders of the Takefu Knife Village co-operative. This is just one of several lines of knives he makes which also includes the popular Kanehiro brand.

Kato-san fashions the Yuki line out of the popular and well loved White, or Shirogami, #2 steel. In this case, hardened to 62-63 HRC. This a wonderful alloy for kitchen knives exhibiting the ability to take a super sharp cutting edge. Of course this high carbon steel is also extremely reactive. To aid in maintenance and increase strength and lightness, the inner core is then covered with a layer of softer stainless steel. This outer layer is then given a very attractive nashiji (pear skin) finish.

The santoku is rapidly becoming a favorite knife style in many western kitchens. It has the all round cutting and slicing ability of a gyuto with the extra height and shorter blade of a nakiri. It is a dexterous knife that finds itself used in many situations. Santoku translates to three virtues and the acts of slicing, chopping, and dicing are tackled with aplomb by this classic design.

    5  Great knife both functionally and aesthetically., April 23, 2018
    Posted By: Jacky Wu

    Picked this up because I wanted a nice shorter knife due to space. It is really sharp OOB and the stainless steel cladding makes maintenance much easier. White #2 steel gets sharp real fast with a few passes on my stone. If you're in need for a short do it all knife, you should consider this one.

    I am ridiculously happy with this knife! OOB edge is great, it balances well, and just a beautiful knife. With the cladding maintenance is super easy. Seriously considering something else in the Yuki line for my next buy!
