Masutani – VG10 Damascus Gyuto 180mm
Masutani – VG10 Damascus Gyuto 180mm

 

Masutani Knives

Masutani-San forges knives out of Echizen, Japan. They are a small-sized company and produce amazing quality knives for the price. Masutani-San is known as an incredible knife sharpener and all knives come super sharp out of the box.

The Masutani Damascus Nakiri is constructed using core steel of VG10, a cutlery grade stainless steel produced in Japan. It has a high carbon content which allows it to be heat treated to higher hardness levels thus allowing the blade to take on finer, sharper edges whilst being able to maintain that edge for prolonged periods of time

 

Gyuto (Chefs Knife):

The Gyuto is a Japanese designed chef’s knife. Gyutos vary widely in design but generally range from 180mm to 270mm in length though smaller and larger examples can be found. Like the familiar western-styled chef’s knife, Gyutos are commonly tall at the heel, have a reasonably flat profile toward the heel for chopping, a belly toward the tip of the blade for rock cutting, and a pointed tip for precision work.

 

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.

SG2 is a powdered steel which can hold a very fine, Super sharp edge for prolonged periods of time, due to its exceptional hardness.
