MONZABURO is the one of major professional knives series of Matsui Cutlery Co., Ltd. This knife is called Wagyuto which means Japanese style of Chef knife. It is used for all kinds of ingredients to slicing, peeling, and cutting as American Chef knife. The different between American Chef knife and this knife is the blade and the handle. The blade is not stainless steel but Japanese steel called Aoko (Blue II steel), so it is going to be rust, if we do not take care of the blade for a long time, however; it is much sharper than stainless steel and the blade of edge hold on last longer without sharpening the edge with whetstone. AoKo is sandwiched with two of softer steel from outer sides. The handle is just like Japanese style knife handle made with octagon shaped magnolia with double ends water buffalo horn bolster. They get to fit our hand easily and not slippery.
