Mcusta Zanmai Classic Damascus

These knives are for the cook who wants a seriously sexy knife with no maintenance. With a thick spine and tough blade, Mcusta Zanmai knives are like kitchen bling with added practicality. Many people are awed with these knives as they are a real eye catcher that literally falls through food with very little effort. 32 layers of Damascus steel will ensure this.

The central core steel is high carbon super steel known as VG10. It was created for knife making. What a clever idea. This steel has the highest recommendations in the production of knives by authorities such as the British Steel Confederation, C.A.T.R.A and the Solingen Institute of Steel in Germany.

Based in Seki City, Mcusta is a family business that specializes in creating the best luxury blades. While most factory made knives are stamped out from steel, Mcusta laser cuts their knives. The assembly is finished by hand to ensure quality. To quote their website directly: “…It has sticking to which the compromise is not permitted, and the making of a sensibility degree high potato is pursued.” We don’t really know what it means, but we think that the knives cut like a dream.

The Corian handle is built for longevity with enough weight to remind you that you are holding a serious knife. With proper care this knife will be an heirloom.
