Item #: HMA-VGYA
Size:
Style: Sashimi Slicer
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. All Masamoto traditional Japanese style knives come with an authentic Masamoto wooden cover to protect the blade.

For Left-Handed Customers

  • Left-handed blades must be special ordered from Japan, and will cost 50% more than the right-handed blades. Due to how each traditional Japanese knife is handmade by right handed craftsmen, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to forge and deliver.


Did you know?

  • Korin offers their customers a free maintenance service for all traditional Japanese knives!

  • The initial blade serves as a sharpening guide in the future. Free initial sharpening and uraoshi sharpening is available with every purchase. Please be aware that sharpened knives are not eligible for returns.


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.
