About Masamoto Shiro-Ko Kasumi 正本 霞玉白鋼

The Masamoto Shiro-ko Kasumi grade knives are handcrafted in Japan using a combination of white carbon steel #2 and soft iron. White steel is a form of pure carbon steel that provides the user with the sharpest cutting edge. Kasumi knives are more affordable than hongasumi, making them ideal for traditional knife beginners.

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 Deba
The deba is often used in the Japanese fish markets and restaurants that work with whole fish, because it is designed to behead and fillet fish without damaging the fish. Although many use the deba on other meats, the deba is not intended for chopping of large diameter bones nor should it be used by slamming down the knife like a cleaver. For the best results, please put pressure on the spine of the knife to put clean and precise cuts. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region of Japan.
