Masakage - Shimo

Hand forged by Yu Kurosaki for Masakage, the white #2 steel has been finished with a spectacular pattern created by a custom made X shaped hammer and is designed to resemble morning frost. The beautiful blades match perfectly with the white pakka wood handles.

Why buy this range

Stunning unique looks and a very thin, lightweight blade with an individual pattern hammered into every knife make the Shimo stand out a mile in the kitchen.
