The Knife

It’s Just A Sexy Knife

  • This is by far, one of the most visually appealing knives we have come across.
  • But don’t worry, the full tang and 67 layers of hammer folded stainless Damascus steel make it an extremely durable and robust too.

A Handle That Will Endure the Ages

  • You’ll instantly notice the beautifully carved Rosewood handle on Suraisā.
  • Then after a closer inspection of the handle, you’ll see its striking central mosaic rivet and the slight sheen from Japanese protective resin that has been applied to the handle in a rigorous 6-stage process!

A Lasting Sharpness

  • Thanks to the 67 layers of hammer folded stainless Damascus steel, Suraisā not only has a beautiful mirrored tsuchime look, but its edge will easily last through many nights of rough chopping in a fast-paced kitchen.

A Natural Non-Stick Solution

  • The blade profile of Suraisā features many dimples on the surface, as a result of hammering the blade without refinement. This kind of rough but sophisticated method serves three purposes.
  • Firstly, it allows for air pockets to be created between the blade and any food, which helps to prevent any food from sticking.
  • Secondly, it creates a striking and visually appealing pattern on the blade. Each blade is slightly different from the last and has its own unique design of dimples.
  • Thirdly, the dimples all act like miniature shock absorbers. As any impact vibrations travel from the sharp edge of the blade up to the spine (top), the dimples act as filters and help to dissipate the vibrations.
  • This means you have more input and control over Suraisā and you can be a lot rougher on it than with other Nakiri blades.

Practicality Like No Other

  • At Masuta Knife Imports, we really love this knife because it is sort of deceptive. It looks just like one of those “luxury artistic blades” that sell for tens of thousands of dollars, and then get put in a frame and are never used.
  • What’s deceptive is that you will definitely want to use this knife all the time, and you might even become addicted to it. It’s durable materials, and gorgeous design, paired with the overall versatility of a Nakiri design make Suraisā a great knife capable of handling anything your kitchen throws at it.
  • If you’re looking to spice up your kitchen with a great knife that rarely needs sharpening and is an excellent “all-rounder.” Or if you want to instantly impress your friends at dinner parties and portion food with a spectacularly stunning knife, then the Suraisā is meant for you.

Carefully Packaged by Hand

  • All of our knives are shipped in protectively padded cardboard boxes.
  • This is to ensure that your blade stays safe on its journey to you.
  • Many of our customers also choose to use the original packaging to store their knives in between uses.

Not Dishwasher Friendly

  • We perform extensive durability testing on all our knives before we agree to share them with our wholesale or online customers.
  • This is to ensure that we provide the highest quality products that will last the longest.
  • So, this means that if you’re in a pinch, yes you can put a Masuta knife in the dishwasher. One gentle wash cycle won’t be enough to cause permanent harm to the edge, handle, or tone of your knife.
  • However, please keep in mind that most dishwasher powders and detergents contain highly alkaline compounds such as trisodium phosphate.
  • Long-term exposure to these chemicals will eventually start to degrade the handle, and "decarbonize" the tone of your blade. This is why professional Chefs always hand wash their knives.
  • We do provide industrial grade knives capable of withstanding commercial foodservice environments as part of our wholesaling business. Please visit our wholesale page for more information.

Sharpen As Needed

  • All of our knives are specifically forged so that they have a long-lasting, durable edge.
  • For a home cook, they stay razor-sharp for many months and possibly up to a year!
  • For a professional Chef who is using the knife multiple times a day, its edge can last for up to three-months between sharpening.
  • For the best results when re-sharpening, we recommend you use a series of whetstones with different grits. You can also use a sharpening rod of your choice.
  • Electric sharpeners are usually okay too, as long as they are high-quality ones.
  • Each knife also comes with a sharpening guide and recommended sharpening angles as part of the Masuta Certificate of Authenticity.

Please be Careful

  • Our knives are built to hold a lasting, razor-sharp edge. Please remember to be cautious when using your knife and to keep children away.
  • We also take the time to pre-sharpen all of our knives by hand before we send them to you. This is so your knife will be able to shave through thin strips of paper right out of the box!
  • Although doing this is very fun and satisfying (we do it too), please remember to be careful and not to get too excited when you first get your knife. Masuta Knife Imports is not responsible for any injuries that may result from improper or unsafe handling of your knife.
  • All of our blades are beautiful and unique. However, they can also be dangerous, and they must be respected as such.
