These cook's knives from Mr. Masano belong to best knives made in traditional way available in Japan. The knife blades are of three-layer-steel and not stainless. The middle layer is of premium Japanese Stahl Shirogami 01 and the outer layers are of a little softer carbon steel. These knives are as usually not stainless. The knife clamp is of real horn. As traditionally - one side of the blade is ground straightly, the other obliquely. This grinding enables very precise cutting.
Masano is a small Japanese family smithy and company. Their customers have been only Japanese so far.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
