Masakage Kumo

Sexy or what? Dubbed Kumo (cloud), these dreamy looking blades could be compared to watching the clouds on the coolest of days. The blades are hand-forged with VG-10 stainless steel wrapped with alternating damascus layers of stainless steel and nickel, teamed up with an octagon cherry wood and pakka handle. They have a nice light feel and forward balance. Heavenly!

VG-10 is a steel that brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. That and it’s stainless so you never see your food discolour or pick up a rusty knife.

These blades are forged by Takumi Ikeda in Takefu Knife Village.
