One of the knife makers that we carry here at KNIFE that always impresses us is Mcusta Zanmai. Not only for their great workmanship, but for their tireless efforts in continually pushing the boundaries of knife making. A knife is simple. Forged steel, handle, classic. But Mcusta always seems to find a way to improve, innovate and excite with their constant search for perfection.
We are extremely proud to be able to be the first in the world to offer to you Mcusta Zanmai's Beyond. The latest from our dear friends over at Mcusta. These knives utilize an Aogami Super steel core and gorgeous hinoki wood handles (please smell the knives when you first open the box). These will truly become some of our shop classics.
Mcusta Zanmai is a subset of Marusho Industry Inc. and, to this day, is a family business. The current president, Tomohiro Hasegawa took over from his father recently and together they have been at the forefront of modernizing Japanese knife making with the latest machines and modern material while maintaining age-old Japanese traditions. Their knives are laser-cut, hand assembled and hand finished to ensure near perfection.
As the Elder Hasegawa-San puts it, "...our master craftsmen infuse all our products with the pride and traditions inherited from centuries of Japanese blade makers."
Please note that these knives are not stainless steel and need to be cared for accordingly. These knives are also extremely thin and should never be used with force to avoid warping. Let the knife guide your precision!
