               SHIKI Katana Series (Clad)

 It has been over 7 years, since we started making the unique custom hand made, SHIKI Brand kitchen knives with Mr. Hiroaki Masui (President of Hiro Knives company).

    Now wide selections of unique SHIKI knife collections are available with Mr. Masuifs innovative idea, design, and passion.

     I personally have enjoyed working with Mr. Masui.  Mr. Masui (Hiro company) has been originally the maker of outdoor folding knives and hunting knives. Therefore it was a big challenge for him to enter into the kitchen knife market and there were many hurdles which he had to overcome for producing high quality kitchen knives in the beginning.

     I was impressed with Mr. Masuifs challenging spirit and aggressive attitude for learning new techniques and knowledge from the experienced kitchen knife craftsmen and the restaurant chefs, and also his passion for producing something more unique&better knives which are not existing in the market.

    This time, Mr. Masui came up with beautiful Cladding blade knife with the concept of  Japanese Sword "KATANA".

   The blade features finely hand brushed satin hair-line finish that makes graceful look with Hamon-like wavy clad line. This is the time-consuming hand processes of polishing the entire blade to a highly mirror first and then brushing the blade evenly   (semi-mirror polished).  Mr. Masui is experts of mirror polishing process, also his skills for custom handle making are outstanding. He has decided to add the hand brushed Hair-line finish over the mirror polished blade, because he thought the bladefs wavy cladding layer can appear more impressive just like the traditional Katana blade with Hamon, and the result was a perfect matching with simple and elegant overall looks.

     Indeed, these beautiful VG-10 Cladding blade knives are completely different from existing other cladding blade knives. Sturdy and extra strength of Hand rounded Black Linen Micarta Handle makes secured grip. Red color fiber spacer and decorative Mosaic pin are nice accent and matching for Mr. Masuifs design concept gJapanese Sword Katanah.

    VG-10 core sandwiched with 420J2 stainless steel HRC60 to 61.

    Ellegant&Modern design of SHIKI KATANA Series (Clad) is now being available with total 6 kinds of blades for serious home chefs to professional chefs who demand stylish and excellent hand made knives.
