For your information, most of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.

However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.

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

  • 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.

  • *e recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

Review of Masamoto VG Series Gyuto

I received the Masamoto VG Series 210 mm gyuto several years ago as a gift. I have found the blade to take a very good edge, and to hold it longer than any of our previous knives. The thin blade makes it excellent for almost all of our cutting and chopping tasks - both my wife and I always grab this knife first. We like it so much that we have now given each of our adult children one of them also. I highly recommend this knife.

Years Were Lost Using Bad Knives

It was by accident that I found JapaneseChefsKnife.com. Up until this time in my life had had only middle of the road knives and I thought they were pretty good, but I took the plunge and bought this beautiful Masamoto Gyuto. I wanted stainless steel and the handle looked like a good fit, and the fair shipping rate and product back-up looked good. What a surprise when it arrived to the other side of the earth in 6 days! The fit of the handle, the balance, the precise and comfortable lines, the amazing cutting power...it's just a delightful knife that I use constantly now, and I look forward to preparing meals just to use this knife. (This past week I got to hold a friend's Henckel chef's knife. It was awful; uncomfortable to hold, horribly unbalanced, poor handle fit. It was a good reminder of time and fun that were lost in the kitchen without a truly GOOD knife.) I'm beyond delighted with this wonderful knife!
