Masakage Knives
Since 2007, Masakage Knives have been dedicated to supplying the finest handmade knives Japan has to offer. We love knives that stay sharp extremely long, are easy to sharpen, look great and above all cut like lasers. It is known that knives made in factories can be great, but blades made by Master Blacksmiths are truly superior and reach excellence. This is what Masakage is about.

All knives from Masakage are handmade by Master Blacksmiths and hand sharpened by one of Japan's best knife sharpeners, Takayuki Shibata san. When these knives come out of the box they have an amazing sharpness and will stay sharp for an extremely long time due to Shibata san's unique technique.
