Masamoto KK Series Kasumi White Steel No.2 KK-3716W Nakiri 165mm (6.4inch)

Availability: Normally ships within 1 to 2 days


The Masamoto KK Series is Masamoto’s most affordable range of hand-made Japanese traditional-style Kasumi knives, however, they maintain the high standards of craftsmanship, product quality and cutting performance that Masamoto are famous for.

Masamoto KK Series Knife uses a blade core of Hitachi White Steel No.2 (Shiro-ko #2; HRc. 62-63), which is forge-welded and sandwiched with soft iron. White Steel No.2 is very pure and is capable of achieving a high hardness level without being overly brittle, therefore it can be used to create very sharp edges with good edge retention, which are still easy to sharpen.

 This knife is fitted with a traditional Japanese ‘Oval-shaped’ magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn ferrule / collar. 

The Nakiri is a double bevel edged knife that is rectangular in profile and has a tall, thin blade. It is popular throughout Japan and is often used by home cooks for quickly and efficiently chopping, slicing or mincing vegetables and fruit. It is becoming increasingly popular with vegetarians.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems. 

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and their sharp edge of your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for a long time.

 

Important

This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for a long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in a dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

Masamoto Nakiri

Beautiful Nakiri, Got some weight on it compare to some other Nakiri's I've used. Perfect for vegetable cutting, however the fit and finish on this knife is not the best, KS series has better fit and finish than the KK series for sure.

Masamoto Nikiri

I've handled many knives in my life and this is the best performing of them all. Blown away with how incredible the edge is and how long it retains an edge. Great for extremely fine detailed work.
