Collection: Yoshimi Kato

Yoshimi Kato is the son-in-law of Hiroshi Kato, the master blacksmith of Masakage Knives. Under the tutelage of Hiroshi Kato, Yoshimi-san became a master of forging and heat-treating high-end Japanese Steels like SG2, and Aogami Super.

 Yoshimi Kato-san also handles the forging of Masakage Kiri, Yuki, and Koishi lines, and has been working on lines under his own name as well. His SG2 Black Damascus line are among some of the thinnest, blazingly sharp blades we’ve ever seen, not to mention their absolute stunning beauty. Yoshimi-san has seriously knocked it out of the park on this one, and we look forward to seeing how his knives evolve for decades to come.
