Masamoto


Masamoto KS Series Hon Kasumi White Steel No.2 Wa Slicer (240mm and 270mm, 2 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships within 1 to 2 days


The KS Series is Masamoto’s range of high-grade Shiro-ko #2 (White Steel No.2) Hon Kasumi Japanese traditional-style knife. When compared with the Kasumi knife-making process, the production of Hon Kasumi knife requires several extra steps be carried out during the forging, quenching, sharpening and finishing stages of production and requires a higher level of craftsmanship. Unlike the KK Series, the KS Series 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.

The long, narrow blade of slicer is particularly useful for slicing meat, boneless fish, roast beef and ham. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

Notice about White and Marble Colored Water Buffalo Horn Ferrules for Masamoto Knives:

Unfortunately, Masamoto and most other Japanese knife makers have recently been struggling to source Wa handles with White or Marble colored Water Buffalo Horn Ferrules, which are becoming very scarce.

Due to these unfortunate circumstances, Masamoto cannot guarantee that they will be able to supply your knife with a White or Marble colored Horn Ferrule. Both we and Masamoto will do our best to supply your chosen color of ferrule, but it is very likely that Masamoto will only be able to supply a knife with a Black colored Ferrule.

We actually recommend the simple, stylish solid Black colored Ferrules because, over many years, numerous Wa Handle Craftsmen, professional Japanese Food Chefs and Experienced Knife Users have found these Black Horn Ferrules are stronger and more durable than White colored Ferrules and Marble colored Ferrules.

If you order a Masamoto knife with a Marble or White colored Horn Ferrule and Masamoto cannot fulfil your request, we will inform you by Email and ask if you are willing to accept a Black colored Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule instead. We apologize for this inconvenience, but no matter the color of the ferrule, we are confident that you will enjoy your Masamoto knife.

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 knives never let me down

    Great knife. Nice secured packaging came in on time. Only problem is the saya didn’t fit my knife properly (too tight on the inside that i have to force pushing in or pulling the knife out

    True Artistry

    This is one of the best knives I have ever had the pleasure of using. It took me a little over a year to finally find one but the wait was totally worth it. Just holding it in your hand, you can feel the artistry of a master blacksmith. At first glance, the blade looks unassuming and plain, however still waters run deep. If you have the opportunity, buy one of these.

    Amazing Knife and Great Customer Service!

    The knife is everything I hoped/expected it would be for the price and reputation of the Masamoto KS line. JCK was great about getting in touch with me throughout the order process. The ferrule color that I originally selected was out of stock, and they gave me the option to either wait for the knife to be back in stock or select a different ferrule color. Overall great experience for my first time purchasing from JCK, would recommend to a friend and will use them again in the future!
