About Masamoto Ao-Ko Layered Hongasumi 本霞 • 八層打玉青鋼

The Masamoto Ao-ko Layered Hongasumi knives are crafted by uniting four layers of blue carbon steel #2 and soft iron steel. The beautiful pattern on the blades is crafted by a combination of special forge welding and hammering processes. The layers of blue steel create a longer edge retention and more chip-resistant blade than white carbon steel hongasumi knives.

About Masamoto
Minosuke Matsuzawa, the founder of the Masamoto Sohonten Company started making knives in 1866. It was his dream that his family would come to be remembered as knife craftsmen throughout the generations. Now, five generations later, Matsuzawa’s vision has been realized and professionally crafted Masamoto knives have become widely regarded as the finest knives made for professional use.

Purpose of Yanagi
