The Marushin Makato brand was established by a renowned knife sharpener Tadokoro Makato in Tosa, Shikoku. He was originally from Sakai where at the age of 16 he learnt the art of blade grinding and honing from his father Morihiro San, a legendary exponent of the art. Using his unique skills and knowledge, he has identified master blacksmiths whose work he grinds, hones and attaches handles to create unique knives of extreme functionality and beauty. The Marushin Collection is forged from a 3 layer steel with hard stainless Yasuki Silver 3 core and soft stainless cladding. The blade is mirror finished and the expert tempering is reflected in the Iridescent rainbow hue (which with cleaning will fade away) that mesmerizes the eye. The handle is hand crafted from South East Asian Ebony with a water buffalo horn
ferrule and butt. Please Note: The handle colour varies from light to quite deep ochre.
