Mcusta Santoku Revolution Red is a knife for a serious home cook or a junior professional chef. Santoku knife is a versatile kitchen knife that will shine through all kinds of chopping and cutting on the kitchen board. Meat lovers will only miss a little bit of length with larger pieces of meat. Did you know that the word santoku means "knife of three virtues" in Japanese? The word san translates to three, meaning that it can be used to prepare vegetables, fish, and meat.

As its name suggests, Santoku Revolution was made of the revolutionary new type of steel called Powder Metallurgy (PM steels), known for their great edge retention and corrosion resistance. The steel was hardened to 61 HRC and is san-mai clad, meaning the core SG2 steel is clad into 2 layers of softer stainless steel.

The handle is revolutionary too. The red pakka wood was shaped into the ergonomic decagonal (10-sided) handle which will sit comfortably in your hands for hours of work. A mosaic pin was placed in the middle of the handle for added aesthetics, while a stainless bolster with a white splitter ensures a smooth transition from the blade to the handle.

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 that 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!
