This Knife is one of the most affordable lines from Masakage yet does not sacrifice performance. Forged by Master Blacksmith Katsushige Anryu you know the quality will still be great. Aogami or Blue #2 steel wrapped in soft iron cladding give this knife great performance, but It will need to be cared for as its fully reactive. The handle is made from Olive wood with a decorative plastic ferrule. Mizu translates to water meaning the color of the blade is meant to resemble the deep blue ocean waters.

*The Petty or Utility knife is a small knife used for smaller and more delicate tasks. They range in size from 120mm to 210mm and usually have a short blade height and thin blade. They can be used as a line knife or to prep various smaller items. Great for things like cutting fruit, herbs or even to portion and slice smaller proteins. In our opinion this is a top 3 knife everyone should have in their arsenal.*

    • After use be sure to wash using warm water, dish soap and a soft non-abrasive cloth or sponge. 
    • Dry knife immediately after washing to avoid corrosion.
    • If storing for an extended period of time use a knife oil like the one found here https://thekniferoll.com/collections/sharpening-accessories/products/tsubaki-knife-oil
    • For edge maintenance and sharpening use whetstones, strops, or a fine ceramic honing rod. Avoid oil stones, diamond stones and steel rods
    • Some high carbon knives will need to be wiped  dry periodically during use if cutting highly acidic foods to avoid corrosion.
