The Masakage Shimo, hand forged by Yu Kurosaki. A star pupil of the master Hiroshi Kato, Kurosaki-san produces some truly stunning knives. The Masakage Shimo (which means “frost”) line is thin, light, hard, and oh so much fun! Pure carbon steel fury!
About the Shape - Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, Gyutos are a multi purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias. “Gyuto” translates to “cow sword.” If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. Starting at 180mm, Gyutos can reach the ridiculously long (and awesome) 370mm. For the at-home or professional cook, we recommend a Gyuto which measures between 210mm and 270mm long.
