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 production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
