The Masamoto Wa-Series features a versatile Western blade on a beautiful traditional Japanese magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster. The Masamoto Wa-series is available in two steel types, stain resistant Swedish steel or white carbon steel. This line is highly recommended for those who enjoy knives with a traditional Japanese handle.

The gyutou is a versatile chef's knife. It can be used for cutting meat, fish and vegetables, making it suitable for preparing Western cuisine. Lightweight and thin, Japanese chef knives have a sharper blade and maintain their sharpness longer than most other chef knives.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.
  • Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.
