About The Company
Masamoto Sohonten was founded towards the end of the Edo period by Minosuke Matsuzawa, the first generation of Matsuzawa knife craftsmen. The founder devoted his life to developing crafting techniques and producing consistently high quality knives. Over six generations, Masamoto Sohonten has been refining and protecting the founder’s integrity.
Only Masamoto Sohonten has carried on the techniques and approaches to hardening, tempering and polishing created by the first-generation founder Minosuke.
As well as cutting well, boasting excellent durability and requiring little maintenance, the range of Masamoto® knives has expanded into various types based on feedback from the chefs using them even back in this time. Striving to create the perfect knife that meets the demands of users, Masamoto Sohonten works diligently on a daily basis, devoting itself to the task so that others cannot follow.
Although we live in an age of instant gratification, the desire for well prepared and great-tasting food will always continue. Delicious cuisine comes from the knowledge and sensibilities of an excellent chef, and an excellent chef chooses excellent tools.
MASAMOTO® knives have been cultivated and refined over a long history. Each traditional knife represents a masterpiece of uniform excellence that we hope customers will use for years to come.
