Mcusta Gyuto Supreme Twisted is a unique looking Chef’s knife. Gyuto blade shape is the Japanese version of the chef’s knife, so this knife will fit well into the hands of both the professional chef or the passionate home cook. With its thin blade, typical for all Mcusta knives, it will slice through your veggies, meat, and fish with ease and almost without any applied pressure to the knife.
The knife brings together an old forging tradition and the most advanced Japanese technology. Mcusta knives are laser cut and sharpened by hand. The blending of ultra-modern technology and precise processing by hand provides state-of-the-art design, perfect knife balance and superior out-of-the-box sharpness.
The traditional single-steel blade (monosteel) with a VG-10 steel core (61 HRC) is easy to resharpen and retains an edge for a very long time. This keeps things simple and reliable. The blade is ground on both sides (at a ratio of 50/50) and can be used by right- and left-handed users.
The blade has a high polish finish (also called migaki) and lends itself well to the finest and most delicate cuts.
The steel in the Supreme Twisted knife goes all the way to the tip of the octagonal handle made of unique and durable twisted red pakkawood with a phenol resin coating for superb handling and robustness. The handle is where the innovation is. It is twisted for a feel of ergonomic comfort and the rivet made from mother-of-pearl is what gives it a unique, daring touch. It also offers a firm, yet comfortable grip.
Supreme Twisted is a luxury line of Mcusta’s knives. Minimalist design of the blade combined with a one-of-a-kind handle will catch the attention of all knife buffs and collectors of Japanese blades. The knife comes with a traditional bamboo gift packaging.
👉 Do you wish to bring a smile on the face of a finicky cook that also loves all things beautiful? You just found a perfect gift.
Laser-cut by custom machines developed by Mcusta, this monosteel gyuto is made of stainless and great performing, easy to resharpen, VG-10 steel. A simple-looking, high polished blade with no extra features, designed to put the focus on the uniquely shaped twisted handle.
☝️ All knives from the Supreme Twisted collection are packed in a luxury bamboo box (seen in the product photo), so these knives will make for a great gift. Just don't forget to attach a coin to it when presenting the gift!
About Mcusta Zanmai:
Mcusta Zanmai has an interesting (and very high-tech) philosophy of knife manufacturing. With their 800-year tradition of making knives, they decided to incorporate traditional knife craftsmanship knowledge into their own custom-made machines. Mcusta is the only knife manufacturer who uses laser machines to cut out the knives, instead of stamping the knives out of the steel sheet. Due to this process, their blades are less susceptible to structural stresses in the steel, making them the most innovative and modern knife maker in Japan.
Handles and pins are milled to the precision of 1/1000mm with their high-quality CNC machines. Every knife is then inspected and assembled by hand. The final (sharp) edge is sharpened by Mcusta's team of master craftsmen to get a very good out-of-the-box sharpness.
☝️ Fun fact: Mcusta is a made-up word - a combination of Machine and custom!

I ordered “home professional sharpening set”, the quality of the products and packaging was really good.
The delivery was really fast (2 days to Portugal) and everything was perfect.
I will purchase more items from Sharp Edge shop!!
Ordered two times from the shop (first time the Black Bunka Damascus 160, second time a variety of sharpening stones). Ordering process was easy and shipping was extremely fast both times (2 days across europe is a miracle these days!). Had a question afterwards and got answers from customer service within half an hour in the evening. What else can you ask for?
I will definitely keep an eye on the shop and the offered products and for sure there will be a third order (and a fourth, and a fifth.....).
The knife arrived quickly (to New Zealand), razor sharp, & with a beautiful custom handle fitted by Sharp Edge. For quality, looks, balance, and feel, Japanese knives are on another level and this is no exception. The craftsmanship and pride with which these knives are made is unequalled anywhere in the world.
Todo perfecto, buen cuchillo y envío muy rápido
I had wanted this knife for a while now (Takamura VG10 130mm) and couldn't find it anywhere until I found the online shop of SharpEdge! The delivery only took 3 days, despite me living in Germany!
It's already my favorite knife in my kitchen!
The knife is not razor sharp OOTB, but after a few strokes on 3K and 8K became scary. Great performance and super comfortable though the handle is not a typical Wa one. After all is a Takeshi Saji....
Excelente cuchillo y envío rápido, genial como siempre, hasta la próxima compra!
Love it!. Razor sharp, cuts like .a dream! Mate got the whole set!. He loves them too.' Love Hap 40 blades!. Have a few & when i saw this knife just had to have it!. Very happy customer!
Good service and friendly people. Fast express shipping I will buy her again for sure.
Received excellent service from Sharp Edge. Quick to reply and very helpful. Delivered on time to Australia. Excellent products.
I have by now ordered 2 different knives, and recieved the knives superfast each time. Its a pleasure to deal with Sharpedge, and the knives are simply beautiful made, and incredibly sharp😊👍
Completely as advertised. The knife is razor-sharp out of the box. The handle is long enough to be comfortable despite being a relatively small knife overall. It's well-balanced and the handle is spectacular. A functional work of art!!!
How to describe their job : incredible !
The team are always here to help, giving their advices following our needs, give answer to our question. They answer to our mail within 24h and are very kind and available.
It’s a real pleasure to order through their website. They have such a great Japanese knives line with different Japanese craftsmen.
I ordered two times from them with an excellent services.
I live in France and I was also pleasantly surprised to receive my orders within 24 hours, so the delivery service is also of great quality.
When I had a trouble with my handle they told me how to repair it. When I wasn’t able to do it by myself they just sent me a new one without any charge.
Just go for it !
The team at Sharp Edge carries an exceptional line of Japanese knives and provides excellent and responsive customer service. I've upgrading some of my Western knives to higher-quality Japanese knives and recently purchased the HAP-40 Petty Black 135mm (5.3") [Tottori Sand]. It's really a work of art, highly functional, and razor sharp out of the box; this particular knife is really too nice to take to a commercial kitchen, where I grew up, but a real treat at home where you can take better care of it. Sharp Edge also carries knives that are a bit less fussy and would do well in commercial use and are great cost-effective solutions. Many traditional Western-style knives with smaller blades inevitably come with much smaller handles that are difficult to grasp, but the traditional octagonal Japanese handles are especially welcome in that regard.
Amazing customer service!
Very fast delivery!
