Description

This is a beautiful Masakage cutlery knife. It is Carbon Steel Damascus/ Sand Blasted blade with a core steel of White #2. The engraving is hand engraved. The blade is a santoku with a sword tip.

Kurosaki excellent quality knives, and his work on the Shimo series for Masakage is no exception. The reactive iron Damascus cladding is some of the most beautiful we have seen, hammered to resemble frost patterns that appear on windows during the winter. The core steel of White #2 is handled impeccably by the smith. A very refined edge is possible on this knife though, like most all Masakages, the edge the knife comes with is pretty darn sharp. The symmetrical convex grind and blade geometry on all of Kurosaki's knives are really the stars of the show. Ultra-thin behind the edge, the final grind blends seamlessly with a generous convex section in the middle. While not lasers, these knives slide through soft and hard produce with equal ease making them tremendous performers in a broad range of applications.

The 165mm Shimo Bunka is essentially a santoku with a sword tip. Many prefer this profile to the santoku for the bunka's ability to handle more detailed tip work and the reduced drag towards the end of the blade. Edge profile is nice and flat with a bit of belly for rocking towards the tip.
