Masashi SLD

Masashi SLD

Built completely by one man, Masashi Yamamoto, these knives are true works of art. He does everything from forging the steel, making and fitting the handle, and the kanji on the blade that reads Masashi Saku.

All knives in this line have SLD steel at the core, sandwiched between two layers of softer stainless steel. Designed by Hitachi as a steel used for dies to cut and punch other steels, SLD has also proven itself in the Japanese cutlery world. It’s composition looks something like this:  Carbon 1.4-1.6%, Chromium 11.0-13.0%, Molybdenum 0.8-1.2% & Vanadium 0.2-0.50%. This translates to a stainless steel that is quite durable and holds a razor edge.

The handles on these knives are pretty unique. They are built with Pagoda wood and are half octagon and half oval-shaped which fits in the hand very nicely. All handles are also fixed with a water buffalo horn collar. SOO NICEE!!!!
