The razor sharp, mirror polished edge on the Masahiro MV-H knives is ground to an 80/20 asymmetrical angle to mimic traditional one-sided Japanese knives. Amazingly lightweight yet perfectly balanced, the knives are remarkably durable, made from MBS-26 high carbon stainless steel, proprietary to Masahiro, which has treated by three stages of quenching, sub-zero treating and tempering. The handle is a heat, moisture and solvent resistant resin much more practical and longer lasting than a laminated wood handle. The composite handle is also resistant to bacteria and features a three-rivet design with a very wide full tang almost as wide as the handle itself. This provides plenty of room for the rivets and still allows room for the handle to cover the tang for an incredibly smooth rounded handle that feels great in your hand. Hand wash. Limited lifetime warranty. Imported.
