Yoshimi Kato AS Blue Super Nashiji Santoku 165mm Knife
Yoshimi Kato is the Son of Hiroshi Kato, one of the greatest masters of this craft, the master blacksmith and teacher to many, including Yoshimi Kato and none other than Yu Kurosaki. Yoshimi Kato takes over from Hiroshi Kato (who has retired) at Masakage, and makes his own knives too.
Made with the upmost traditions, painstaking methods and keenness for quality, Kato knives are absolutely stunning and a perfect gift for any chef or keen cook.
This range of knives is made using a Blue Super carbon steel core, with a Rockwell rating of 63/64 HRC, offering the some of the best retention of sharpness out there.
Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
