 Mr. Masui, the President of the hand-made knife company Hiro Knives (SHIKI), has a very strong but simple knife making policy: He designs and produces his own Custom knife designs, using his considerable experience and knowledge of knife production techniques. He is truly passionate about his knives and he is always researching new ideas for knives that are creative and innovative! In the beginning of the year 2020, Mr. Masui has just released the another beautiful and unique Damascus Choppers. 

 Simple & Elegant, the Damascus Chopper 110 mm features a silver-gray VG-10 Stainless Steel blade core (HRc.60 to 61) and outer layers of forge-laminated Stainless Steel. The VG-10 Damascus Chopper has an understated beauty that is further complimented by the subtle figure of the American Cherry Wood handle scales, the natural material also adds warmth and style. The handles are nicely rounded, by hand, and offer a very comfortable grip. 

 In Western-style cooking, people often need to cut hard foods and meat, such as chicken or fish, which often contains bones. Unfortunately, most knife manufacturers have stopped producing this type of special purpose knife due to the low demand for special purpose knives and the decreasing numbers of craftsmen. Thankfully, the innovative knife designer and craftsman Master Masui (President of Hiro Knives Company which produces SHIKI Knife Collections) decided to make these "Choppers" to rebalance this market situation and, of course, he did not forget to add his own distinctive style and skill in to the blend ! 

 We are proud to introduce Mr. Masui’s special purpose VG-10 Damascus Choppers, which are available in Limited Quantity. If you need a suitable knife for cutting chicken, fish or for other hard ingredients, we think one of these delightful Choppers will serve you very well!

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