Masakage Knives

Masakage, a collaboration led by Shibata Takayuki, partners with a diverse range of skilled blacksmiths. Each knife is a testament to craftsmanship, hand-forged by a dedicated artisan and then meticulously sharpened by the team under Shibata-san. Catering to a broad spectrum of preferences, Masakage boasts an extensive range of steels, styles, and finishes to satisfy even the most discerning of consumers.

Yuki Series

The Yuki (meaning "snow") series, masterfully forged by Yoshimi Kato, draws its name from the frosty pear skin finish that graces each blade, reminiscent of a winter's snow.

About the Santoku Knife

The term "Santoku" translates to 'Three Virtues' or 'To Solve Three Problems'. Whether you interpret these virtues as meat, fish, and vegetables or slicing, dicing, and mincing, the Santoku stands as a versatile blade. Equally suited for amateur home cooks and professional chefs, its design offers ample height for those with larger hands, while its relatively compact blade ensures accessibility for all.
