Masamoto Sohonten

Masamoto Sohonten (正本 総本店) was founded towards the end of the Edo period in 1866 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.
