Masakage: A Collective of Master Blacksmiths

Founded in Echizen by Takayuki Shibata, a famed Japanese knife sharpener, Masakage acts as a home for numerous talented blacksmiths. It’s a unique aggregation of skills and styles, ensuring that each knife purchased from Masakage is a quality product from Echizen. Among its various offerings, the Koishi line, forged by Yoshimi Kato, stands out significantly.

The Koishi line features knives with a core of Blue Super Steel (Aogami Super), wrapped in stainless steel cladding that boasts a hammered (tsuchime) pattern and a matte kurouchi finish. This combination not only delivers high performance but also makes each knife visually stunning. The nakiri from this line, typically 165mm in length, is a perfect choice for vegetable preparation. Its flat cutting edge eliminates accordion cuts, making it a preferred tool in kitchens worldwide.

Joe Turkaly
one of the best nakiri you can get

While using my Doi Guren Nakiri at work I needed a home knife for vegetable prep. This one of course is a different profile. I have been using the koishi bunka at home for about 7 months and had to have then nakiri once they brought it in. No regrets! This thing will last forever.
