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.

With a core steel of Shirogami 2 (white steel no. 2), everything about this knife line literally screams 'cool'. Shimo, meaning 'frost', is conveyed throughout the blade by not only utilizing a white carbon steel, but having the cladding also be carbon steel, with a very unique low contrast Damascus pattern. Now, carbon steel cladding does mean this knife will be VERY reactive, so keep that in mind.

Ah, we have finally arrived at the conundrum with no end, the 240mm gyuto. Those who love a 240mm gyuto will without fail and without any subtlety express their obsession with this particular length of gyuto. With 30mm extra than the typical 210mm gyuto, a 240mm gyuto is a great knife for those with bigger hands, larger kitchens, bigger tasks, larger... you get the point! A gyuto is already a versatile knife style, at 240mm, you gain even more versatility. And don't you dare tell someone who loves 240mm gyutos that it's too large to slice garlic, because they'll prove you wrong.

Masakage Shimo knives are handcrafted by Yu Kurosaki, an excellent young smith working out of Takefu Village.
