Korin x Masamoto Collaboration Knives

KORIN x MASAMOTO COLLABORATION KNIVES. The red kanji stamp on the blade of the knife, kizuna, is the Japanese word for ‘bond’ or ‘connection’. The Kizuna represents the bond between the knife craftsmen and the chefs who use these knives. We hope that you feel this kizuna when you use these truly special knives from Masamoto, forged from Shiro-ichi, the purest form of carbon and one of the most difficult types of steel to work with. To ensure perfection, each blade is hand inspected, checked and sharpened by Japan’s number one Grand Master Sharpener, Shozo Mizuyama.
