The most prestigious knife brands in Japan are Masahiro, Masamoto, and Misono. Together they form an elite group known as the thre...e M¿s. Masahiro MV-H knives are produced by Masahiro Co., Ltd. in Seki, Japan. Among the numerous ranges of knives produced by Masahiro, the MV-H range is the top of the line. It is indisputably the best range from one of the best factories in Japan. 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. This asymmetrical edge is derived from traditional one-sided Japanese knives which are also 80/20 asymmetrical. The 80 percent side on the MV-H is only ¼¿ high as compared to the ¾¿ on a traditional Japanese knife, but the idea is the same. An asymmetrical edge is approximately 35% thinner than a 50/50 straight edge. The Masahiro knives are amazingly light weight, yet perfectly balanced. The handle is a composition plastic handle which is remarkably durable and is much more practical and longer lasting than a laminated wood handle. The composite handle is resistant to bacteria, which keeps the knife very hygienic in daily use. The handles are a three rivet design and use a very wide full tang, almost as wide as the handles themselves. This design provides plenty of room for the rivets and still allows room for the handle to cover the tang, which results in an incredibly smooth rounded handle that feels great in your hand. The MV-H range is made from MBS-26 high carbon stainless steel. This MBS-26 is proprietary to Masahiro however, it comes from the VG family like VG-10 that the Kasumi Damascus knives first used. The MBS-26 stainless steel is treated by three stages of quenching, sub-zero treating and tempering until the steel reaches a hardness of 58-60 HRC. Masahiro believes this is the ideal hardness the for a kitchen knife with the features of the MV-H. read more

Kasumi knives are produced by Sumikama Cutlery in Seki, Japan. Sumikama Cutlery specializes in producing knives from the most adva...nced materials with the most advanced manufacturing techniques. Kasumi V-Gold No. 10 Damascus Pattern knives are made from 33 layers of stainless steel. Only the middle layer acts as the cutting edge, and it is made using V-Gold No. 10 stainless steel. V-Gold No. 10 is a high carbon stainless steel with cobalt, manganese, molybdenum and vanadium for added durability and ease of sharpening. The addition of cobalt to this steel requires special tempering in order to maximize the full benefit of this steel. Sumikama's technique for this special tempering is a closely guarded secret. read more

The Tamahagane San Tsubame hand-ha-mmered knives feature 3-ply stainless steel construction. The middle layer is V-G No. 5. This l...ayer is very hard and acts as the cutting edge. The two outside layers are made of SUS410 stainless steel. The outside layers are softer and are more stain resistant then the cutting edge and actually protects the cutting edge. The original thickness is 20-mm and is then thinned by a repeated rolling process to remove all of the impurities, leaving you with very hard, very pure 2-mm stainless steel. Some view this as a modern forging technique. The final thickness of the knife blade is 0.65-mm and the outside layers are 0.675-mm which is why it reaches 61-Degree of hardness on the Rockwell scale. There are several different V-G stainless steels. Kataoka selected V-G No. 5 because it can be hardened as hard as all other V-G steels, but has superior edge retention and stays sharper longer then other knives made of V-G steels. Like the Tamahagane San Kyoto series, the edge on the San and the San Tsubame knives have minute beveled edges. The angle of the edge is between 14 and 15-Degree. To really appreciate the quality of the edge, you must first look at its incredible mirror polish and then try cutting with it. Kataoka has achieved the perfect balance between sharpness and strength with these edges. The handle is made of dark, rich laminated wood which gives the full metal tang a warm, traditional feel in your hand and an elegant look in your kitchen. read more
