The sharpest knives we’ve ever made, our new Kawashima knives grab attention with innovative design and modern materials. The blade is characterized by its curved geometry, wide surface area and razor sharp 15 degree cutting edge made from rare SG2 powdered steel. The distinctive curved handle design ensures comfort while working by releasing arm tension and allowing smoother movements. The result is a well-balanced, highly maneuverable tool that feels perfect in the hand without slipping or rubbing. Messermeister has partnered with legendary bladesmith Shoichi Kawashima to create the next generation of premium cutlery from Seki, Japan.
