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 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.

    Most used knife I own

    You use any knife too much it becomes dull, but this knife with proper care stayed sharp through many months of working in my restaurant. Great quality for the price, unique and sleek. Customizable handle and lightweight design. Patinas after a few months of use but with proper care it is easy to fix.

    Excellent Gyuto

    Very decent Wa Gyuto with excellent craftsmanship. Very lightweight thanks to magnolia handle. The knife is very reactive, takes patina quickly. The patina fades often after use. As expected from carbon steel, the knife is very sharp and holds edge nicely. The blade length is closer to 22 cm for 210 model.

    Very Satisfied

    The Masamoto KS has exceeded expectations so far. The sharpness is impressive and the way it cuts through vegetables is incredible. Delivery was timely and packaging for international shipping was adequate.

    Timeless looking and feeling knife

    First of all the shipping from Japan to Switzerland took 4-5 days which is just amazingly good! I was very happy with that. As this was my first true kitchen knife (Masamoto KS Series White Steel No.2 Wa Gyuto 240mm) I was really excited! Can I describe it as a minimalistic design? I don't know - but I love it, especially with the white bolster. When I saw it in person for the first time I loved the look of the knife with this clean blade. Holding the raw wood handle and feling the weight of it is really cool! It cuts effortlessly and makes cutting a lot of fun :)

    Perfection product and service

    First Masamoto knife I've owned and now I wonder why I took so long to buy one! Great profile great steel, does need a little polishing out of the box to get it razor sharp but incredible to use.
