Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
Mcusta Slicer Damascus Classic D 270mm (10.6") blade length is a looker. Suitable as a primary Chef's knife in a professional kitchen, but it will also be found in home kitchens of serious home cooks. 33 layers of softer and stainless Damascus steel resemble a flame spreading from the bottom to the tip of the blade, giving every knife a unique look. The core of this knife is made of great performing, easy to resharpen, VG-10 steel.
Sujihiki or slicer knives are primarily intended for long pulls and precise cuts of meat and fish. The long and narrow blade is particularly useful for slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in a single drawing motion, from heel to tip.
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 flat ejiri, a bottom part of the handle, has a function - it can be used for crushing garlic and other ingredients.
Damascus Classic is a full-tang gyuto, attached to the ergonomic white pakkawood handle. Three rivets hold the knife securely attached to the handle. A stainless bolster is added for 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 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!

The knife came as advertised in just a few days from our order. Not only is it pretty and very very sharp but it weighs just a few ounces. We might not be cutting a lot of prosciutto with it, but it will find its way to other uses. We love it! Enjoyed doing business with you.
