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.

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!
