More about Masashi
Masashi Yamamoto trained under his uncle, Mr Yoshida at Yoshikane, and produces knives of stunning quality - primarily in his signature SLD steel, a hard wearing, very-nearly-stainless-steel. In 2018 Masashi moved his forge to a new factory in Sanjo (in Niigata Prefecture) and now has two apprentices working with him..
We think he looks a little like Christopher Walken, and he claims to be a children's ski instructor - something we don't doubt.
