That's because they’re all forged by combining different blade crafting methodologies from multiple different cultures.
It could be a conventionally styled Western Chef Knife, that was designed by a renowned Knife Crafter who’s actually located on the eastern coasts of Taiwan. Except the Smith decided to finish the blade following more modern European nitrogen-tempering methods. Or it might be a traditional Deba knife designed by a Japanese Knife Crafter, who decided to forge it using German stainless steel, instead of the usual Japanese high-carbon steels. We love these knives because they truly embody what we’re trying to capture at Masuta Knife Imports, which is to share the beautiful and exquisite cultural stories surrounding the ancient art of Knife Crafting.
