Masakage Knives?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have been looking for a nice j knife gyuto for around $200 and have since learned about the Masakage line of Knives from CKT, the Shimo one in particular. The videos and reviews so far have been overall very positive, just wanted to see if any of you have had personal experience with these Knives! Thanks!

Masakage brand is made by a number blacksmiths out of Takefu village.  I think you're in good hands!

 

There was a documentary 'springhammer' that featured a lot of the people involved with Masakage

 

CHeck out this by one of those same smiths  http://www.knivesandstones.com/syousin-chiku/

I just picked up a Koishi Sanoku and love it. I see a Yuki Gyuto in my future.

Check out knifewear they are having masakage month starting tomorrow, 15% off all masakage knives! Make sure to toggle to your currency as I think the default is CAD.
I'll probably pick up a Yuki smile.gif would go for the shimo if they had a 270mm gyuto

@mentalfood I don't know about your relative amount of experience with knives, but I just want to make sure you're aware that the Shimo is a fully reactive knife. Both the core steel and the cladding are non-stainless, which requires a more immediate cleaning habit as opposed to stainless steel knives.

Stainless is very helpful at work!  The one I linked is stainless clad carbon core.  You get the easy sharpening and less reactivity
