The KS Series is Masamoto’s range of high-grade Shiro-ko #2 (White Steel No.2) Japanese traditional-style knife. Masamoto KS Series Wa Gyuto is completely hand sharpened, polished and finished by especially skilled and experienced craftsmen, which results in extra edge sharpness and a more refined level of finish.

Masamoto KS Series knife uses a blade core of Hitachi White Steel No.2 (HRc. 62-63). White Steel No.2 is very pure and is capable of achieving a high hardness level without being overly brittle, so it can be used to create very sharp edges with good edge retention that are also easy to sharpen. It is perfect for professional users who like to keep their knives extra sharp.

Each knife is fitted with a traditional Japanese ‘D-shaped’ magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn ferrule / collar and also includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) for safekeeping.

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 itssharp 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 cares and attentions 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 KS

Incredibly sharp and light weight. I love the classic french profile as it makes for a great rocking motion. I have the 270 mm I use it as a slicer as well.

Masamoto KS Series White Steel 24 cm

Very happy to be able to get this highly recommended but hard to get piece as it is a very popular item. The workmanship and finishing is impeccable. It is scarily sharp out of the box if you are not used to sharp knife. Will update again on its edge retention, carbon reaction as well as sharpening experience when I start using the knife later. Highly recommended if you can get one.

Masamoto KS Wa Gyuto

My expectations for this knife were high, and they were met or exceeded. The knife is light, well-balanced (a bit forward of the pinch grip, great for tip work), and the right-handed D-shape handle fits me well. I am a slicer/chopper (vs. a rocker) and appreciate the tapered tip and slight belly curve. It is relatively easy to sharpen and holds an edge well, although keeping it razor sharp means going to the sharpening stones more frequently. Highly recommended
