Masakage Shimo

Dubbed Shimo (frost), these 'cool' blades are said to resemble frost on a window. To achieve this, look the blacksmith uses a hammer with a raised ‘X’ on the face, paired with the sexy look of their hand manipulated Damascus finish. Combined with the white (magnolia) and black (pakka wood) octagon handle, this knife is visually striking with a superb forward balance.

Shirogami (white) carbon is pretty darn great- super easy to sharpen, takes a brilliantly sharp edge, and patinas beautifully. Since the blade is not stainless it requires a lot more care, and is ideal for someone who seriously cares for their tools.

These blades are forged by Yu Kurosaki in Takefu Knife Village.
