The Masahiro knives come directly from the city of Seki, Japan.
The quality of these Masahiro knives is very high and they are characterized by an asymmetric processing of the blades: the left side of the blade is flat, the other side of the knife is beveled up to the edge and then polished. This modern Japanese blade design translates into a superior cutting capacity.
The MV series is made of molybdenum vanadium stainless steel MBS-26 (similar to a Sandvik 19C27 or a 440C and predecessor of the VG-10). The handles are riveted to a full tang with thin layers of black-stained wood pressed into a transparent (but not polished) polyamide.
