STORY

Every Master Shin knife is a piece of Korean history. Established in 1845, the Shin Blacksmith is the oldest in Korea. 5th-generation Master Shin In-Young – who earned his title at just 17 years old – is the only smith still practicing traditional Korean blacksmithing methods. In 2016, he was named Intangible Cultural Heritage Treasure #60 by Gyeonggi Province, and has stamped that number into each blade ever since. 

NOTES

Master Shin’s strong and sturdy blades are forged from manganese-rich railroad tracks, and the signature “X” banded handles are crafted from chestnut that’s been shade-dried for years to increase its strength and rot resistance. Notably absent from the blades is a beveled edge – all Master Shin’s knives are hammered to a thin edge that remains razor sharp for years. The short, curved blade of this knife is perfect for zesting, peeling and other tight prep tasks.
