Masamoto Traditional Japanese VG-10

正本 VG-10

Masamoto’s line of stain resistant traditional Japanese style knives are forged to have an extremely hard and corrosion resistant blade so that it can retain an edge for longer than carbon knives. Stain resistant traditional Japanese knives are popular for shikomi (prep work) in Japanese kitchens. Each knife has a magnolia wood handle and a water buffalo horn bolster.

For Left-Handed Customer
