     SHIKI Damascus Limited Edition Series


Master Masui chose and established the brand name “SHIKI” 四季 (“Four Seasons”) because his goal was to make a collection of hand-made knives that were just as beautiful as the four seasons of Japan. Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter; each season is beautiful and has its own distinct natural wonders, sights, sounds, smells, tastes, traditions and atmosphere.

Here, we would like to introduce you to the SHIKISAI (色彩) series of knives, which expresses the core concept behind Master Masui’s “Shiki” brand: the beauty of the four seasons of Japan.

Each knife has a mirror-polished VG-10 Damascus stainless steel blade (HRc. 60-61) and a hand-contoured black pakkawood handle, which has fine stripes that are red, green, or golden-brown in colour.

Master Masui discovered that this unusual type of pakkawood (A resin-impregnated wood laminate that is very stable and water-resistant) develops very striking colored stripes during the hand contouring process that nicely compliment the patterned Damascus blade. He confidently decided that, in addition to using this handle material for his “SHIKI Damascus Limited Edition Series” knives, he would also use it for his regular “SHIKI VG-10 Series” knives.

You now have a selection of 4 different handle materials and a wide variety of unusual colors to choose from! According to Master Masui’s original design concept:

·       The “Black Pakkawood Handle Scales with Green Stripes” is symbolic of the light green leaves and mountains of Spring.

·       The “Fresh Orange Corian® Handle Scales” is symbolic of the bright Summer Sun and active Sunny days.

·       The “Black Pakkawood Handle Scales with Red Stripes” is symbolic of the red-colored leaves and mountains of Autumn.

·       Finally, the “Black Pakkawood Handle Scales with Golden-Brown Stripes” is symbolic of the stillness and quietness of Winter.

Although Master Masui makes kitchen knives that function very well, he wants his SHIKI knives to express something more: His artistic vision and love for the four seasons. We think that these beautiful and exciting SHIKISAI Damascus knives successfully express Mr Masui’s original concept for the SHIKI brand.

UP!    SHIKI VG-10 Series

Using his innovative ideas and designs, Mr. Masui has now produced several different variations of his beautiful SHIKI Damascus knifes. This time, he has just finished working on a simplified version, which has a blade that is made from a solid piece of “VG-10” stainless steel. VG-10 is produced by Takefu Special Steel Co., Ltd. and is one of the most popular and highly regarded Japanese stainless cutlery steels due to its reliability, strong corrosion-resistance, very good edge sharpness and edge retention.

Mr. Masui's experience in knife making and finishing techniques are assertively applied to create the custom handles and the perfectly mirror polished blades of these knives. Most craftsmen struggle to use new and different for their handles, because each material requires slightly different machining processes and hand finishing techniques, but Mr. Masui’s loves to take on the challenges of working with new materials because it enables him to produce knives that excite him and his customers. We admire his enthusiasm and resolute spirit.

Mr. Masui has produced these knives with a wide variety of unique handmade custom handle materials, which include: Walnut Wood, African Red Sandalwood, Pakkawood, Linen Micarta®, Corian®, Water Buffalo Horn, Impala Horn, Camel Bone and Jigged Bone.
