Masamoto Shiro-ko Kasumi

正本 霞 • 玉白鋼

The Masamoto Shiro-ko Kasumi grade knives are handcrafted using a combination of white carbon steel #2 and soft iron. White steel is a form of pure carbon steel that provides the user with the sharpest cutting edge. Kasumi knives are more affordable than hongasumi, making them ideal for traditional knife beginners.

For Left-Handed Customer
