Mcusta Sujihiki Hybrid Splash 270mm (10.6")
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
Mcusta Sujihiki Hybrid Splash in 270mm (10.6") blade length is another beautiful kitchen knife, cut out from the beams of Mcusta's lasers, and then sharpened to a razor-edge sharpness by hand. It got its name (Splash) due to the very pronounced Damascus pattern on the blade, making every single blade a unique piece of art, so this knife is a great choice for all the Damascus lovers out there.
Sujihiki or slicer knives are 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. We should not forget to mention that this is a perfect knife for preparing sushi/sashimi. It's also a perfect knife to cut salami and other dried meat products. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in a single drawing motion, from heel to tip. Compare to a yanagiba knife, a traditional Japanese sushi knife, sujihiki knives are double bevel, so there is no need to learn a new cutting technique as with single bevel knives.
Hybrid Splash features a more simplistic, but very ergonomic handle, made of non-slip pakka wood. Small textures on the hexagon-shaped handle prevent our hands from slipping, even with wet hands. A simple, yet aesthetic luminescent pin holds the full-tang handle securely in place, while the stainless bolster attaches perfectly to the handle, featuring a decorative red spacer.
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.
