Masakage’s Kiri (mist) line are hand forged from VG-10, a high carbon, stainless steel created for knife making and then laminated with 49-layer Damascus and are BEAUTIFUL. Truly useable art! Paired with an oval handle made of white magnolia and red pakka, the balance and overall feel is something that a serious cook craves.
VG-10 is a steel designed to make knives; it brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. The result being a mind-blowingly sharp edge that stays sharp a crazy long time. Compared to other stainless steel, it is a dream to sharpen. You’ll never see your food discolour or have to pick up a rusty knife.
These blades are forged by Yoshimi Kato in Takefu Knife Village.
