Masakage Mizu

Dubbed Mizu (water), these blades have a blue/black kurouchi finish giving the impression of cold, deep water. Paired with an oval cherry handle and a not too fancy plastic collar, these knives are great for the cook that wants performance without blowing their budget.

Aogami (blue) carbon is my kind of steel- super easy to sharpen, takes a brilliantly sharp edge, cuts like silk and patinas beautifully. Since the blade is not stainless it requires a lot of care, making it great for anyone who takes careful care of their knives.

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