What is Pakka Wood?
Pakka Wood is a high quality and long lasting material created by combining resins with sheets of hardwood in multiple layers. Treated with heat and pressure, a solid piece is created. Not only is pakka wood beautiful, it is also strong and moisture resistant.

The Masamoto Virgin Carbon knives have a junkou steel (virgin carbon) blade and a pakka wood handle. The handles are rounder and larger than other lines in Korin’s collection, which make them comfortable for those with larger hands. Steel enthusiasts prefer carbon steel knives above stain resistant blades due to their exceptional sharpness.

The petty is a smaller chef knife that makes it a convenient size for peeling and other delicate work.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • This is not stain resistant. It will rust and discolor after cutting acidic ingredients or if one leaves it wet.
  • Improper care will result in chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting. Korin recommends wiping carbon knives with tsubaki oil to keep moisture off the knife.
  • 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.

Caution

Please be cautious when inspecting carbon knives with wet hands after purchase. We ask customers to inspect all knives prior to using, and will not accept returns on damaged goods. In the event you receive a rusted knife, please call customer service within 48 hours, and we will be happy to assist you.

For more information, please check our pages on different types of sharpening stones or sharpening tips.

Precaución

  • Los cuchillos de carbón son propensos a oxidarse. A modo de evitar dicho comportamiento, se recomienda limpiar la superficie con un trapo limpio y seco después de cada uso.
  • Cortar ingredientes ácidos puede generar la decoloración del cuchillo, pero ello no significa que la calidad de la cuchilla se vea afectada.
