Masahiro professional Japanese knives are made from high quality carbon stainless steel in Seki, Japan These knives have hardened blades with razor sharp edges and are finished with anti-bacterial black POM plastic handles. They combine the very best of Japanese technology with a traditional European looks and feel.
Masahiro knives are very light in weight, yet perfectly balanced. The composite plastic handle is resistant to bacteria , very durable and much more practical and longer lasting than a laminated wood handle. The handles are a three rivet design and use a very wide full tang almost as wide as the handles themselves. This provides plenty of room for the rivets and still allows room for the handle to cover the tang for an incredibly smooth, seamless rounded handle that feels great in your hand. The Masahiro knife range include the popular Masahiro MH-901 9cm Paring knife and the Masahiro MH-910 18cm Chefs knife. Also available are a range of paring knives, utility knives, boning knives, slicer knives, bread knives, carving knives and santoku knives.
