    Hello all,

    Does anyone know if these knives hand forged or machine made? I am considering getting a KS and was curious. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Million, and I should have specified Masamoto KS 240mm Wa Gyuto. I started with Shun Classics and have not had any complaints, but am feeling ready to really start getting into Japanese hand crafted knives. I am looking for a western styled Jap with a 50/50 edge that is not machine made, and Masamoto seems to be the golden standard. Do you know if the Masamoto VG is machine made?

    Thanks in advance
