If I had to choose just one knife to use for the rest of my life, this would be it.”
-Chef Jonathan, holding his 8″ Masahiro Chef knife.
Our chef has been using his carbon steel Masahiro knives at home and in professional kitchens for almost 20 years. He’s tried several other high-end brands and much more expensive knives, but none that compare with these prestigious Japanese tools. The cutting edge is asymmetrical: 80% on the right side of the blade and 20% on the left side then polished to a mirror finish. This tapered style edge takes pressure off food for a perfect finished cut. Because of the asymmetrical edge these knives are only suitable for right handed users. The handles are incredibly smooth and rounded using a composite resin handle which feels great in your hand, plus it’s much longer lasting than wood options.
