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"
The Modern Green line of knives from Mcusta is a great entry level knife for anyone looking to get into Japanese steel. Affordable without sacrificing what is important and true in great craftsmanship.
