The Masutani Hamono Western Migaki Damascus Santoku knife combines the best of Eastern and Western design in its handle. While it features a Western shape and style, it has a half-tang design and just two rivets, which helps to lower the weight of the knife and give it a balance point closer to the blade. This makes it more responsive and easier to handle.

The knife’s VG1 Migaki steel blade is ultra-sharp and capable of slicing, dicing, and chopping with precision. The blade is double-edged and has a thickness of 1.9mm, making it durable and able to retain its sharp edge over time. The mahogany handle is comfortable to hold and easy to clean, with a stainless steel ferrule for added durability. At 170mm in length and 45mm in blade height, this knife is the perfect size for a variety of tasks in the kitchen. Its sleek and elegant design makes it a beautiful addition to any kitchen, and it’s sure to become a favorite among both professional chefs and home cooks. So, it can be a perfect gift for your friends or family who love cooking.

Migaki finish, also known as “polished finish,” is a technique for polishing the blade to a high degree of smoothness. This process is typically done by hand using a series of increasingly fine abrasives, and it can take a considerable amount of time to achieve the desired level of polish.
The main advantage of a migaki finish is that it gives the blade a more refined and elegant appearance. It also helps to reduce drag and resistance when cutting through ingredients, making the knife feel smoother and more precise.
