This is another new line from Masutani. VG1 steel in stainless clad with hammered finish brings a simple and classic look to the knife.

VG1 is very much similar to its favorite rival VG10 steel in terms of durability and corrosion resistance. With thin grind behind the edge, the Masutani is more like a laser to allow you can cut through food effortlessly. 

Handle design is western handle with pakkawood and two stainless pin.
