Masamoto Sohonten White #2 Hongasumi Sushikiri

About Masamoto Hongasumi 本霞 • 玉白鋼
The Masamoto Shiro-ko Hongasumi knives are forged from a combination of white carbon steel #2 and soft iron steel, and handled with magnolia wood and a water buffalo bolster. White steel’s pure carbon content allows for the sharpest cutting edge. The main difference between the kasumi and hongasumi line is found in the crafting process. More steps, higher level craftsman, and greater attention to detail are involved when crafting hongasumi knives, and they therefore are more refined than kasumi 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 Sushikiri
Due to the ever-increasing popularity of the sushi roll, or makimono, restaurants around the world are serving thicker custom sushi rolls with unique combinations of ingredients. But makimono can be difficult to cut without crushing or disturbing the delicate contents. The ingenious style and shape of the sushikiri is expressly designed for cutting sushi rolls easily with a simple back-to-front and then front-to-back rolling motion.
