Don't forget these...

     Think of Masakage as a home for a lot of talented blacksmiths, collectively acting under one roof and name (Masakage). A company started in Echizen by Takayuki Shibata, famed Japanese knife sharpener, it now consists of an assortment of lines which are as unique as the blacksmiths who forge for those lines. Think of it as an aggregation of talent, whereby no matter which knife you buy from Masakage you are guaranteed a quality Echizen product.

The Koishi line of Masakage is amongst one of its most popular. Forged by Yoshimi Kato, all knives in this line consist of a Blue Super Steel (Aogami Super) core steel, enveloped in stainless cladding with a hammered (tsuchime) pattern and an attractive matte kurouchi finish. Simplified this means, a high performance core steel with a high contrast hammer kurouchi finish, make any knife in this line, a true stunner.

Think of a bunka, like a flatter bellied santoku with a k-tip (reverse tanto). Typically available in all the same sizes as a santoku, the main difference comes from the pointed tip which is useful for precision cuts like scouring an onion or garlic and the flatter belly which suits push/pull cutting over rock chopping

      You really can't go wrong here, supply is the only issue. So if they are in stock, they will not be for long!
