Masakage

Crafted by master blacksmiths and in a range of beautiful styles and steels, Masakage knives blend outstanding quality with value for money.

Take one glance and it’s clear these knives are the result of care, attention and years of experience. Linger for longer and you’ll fall head-over-heels for their seductive charms

What’s more, you’ll know you’re buying something truly special. As every Masakage knife is individually crafted, no two are the same. Each knife is personally hand sharpened before it is wrapped, by Takayuki Shibata san, one of the best knife sharpeners in Japan.

Even better hands-on

When you get hands-on with a Masakage knife, don’t be misled by the lightweight feel. They glide through food like it’s not there. Once you adjust to the feel you’ll be chopping and slicing like they do on telly.

That’s if you can bear to tear off the unusual packaging, because every Masakage knife comes wrapped in a Japanese newspaper from the day it was made. How’s that for authentic?

Oh, and it’s pronounced Mah-sah-kah-ge. Yep, we know what we’re talking about.
