Masahiro Co., Ltd. is one of the excellent kitchen knife manufacturers in Seki, at the middle of Japan.
Among the numerous ranges of knives produced by Masahiro, the MV-H (Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel, Honyaki) range is the top of the line.The MBS-26 (by Hitachi Metals) used in this series of knives is remarkably strong and yet does not chip easily.
This material is proprietary to Masahiro; however, it comes from the VG family like VG-10 that the Kasumi Damascus knives first used.The MBS-26 stainless steel is treated by three stages of quenching, sub-zero treating and tempering until the steel reaches a hardness of 58-60 HRC.
Cutting edge is ground 80% on the right and 20% on the left for a tapered design that delivers a precise cut every time.Masahiro believes this is the ideal hardness the for a kitchen knife with the features of the MV-H.
The handle is a composition plastic handle which is remarkably durable and is much more practical, very hygienic in daily use and longer lasting than a laminated wood handle.It is a three rivet design and use a very wide full tang, almost as wide as the handles themselves, which results in an incredibly smooth rounded handle that feels great in your hand.
