Mcusta Sujihiki Supreme Twisted 240mm (9.5")
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
Mcusta Sujihiki Supreme Twisted is a unique looking slicer knife. Slicers have slightly longer and narrower blades than Gyuto knives, so they are intended for long pulls and precise cuts of meat and fish. Laser cut by custom machines developed by Mcusta, this Sujihiki 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.
The thin profile of the blade makes it a perfect tool for precise cuts of larger pieces of meat (eg roast, rib eye steak) and fish, as well as for carving and filleting. With its 240mm (9.5") blade length, this Sujihiki is among shorter slicers, so it can also be used as a general purpose knife too, like the Gyuto.
Supreme Twisted is a full-tang Sujihiki, attached to the never seen before octagon-shaped, twisted red pakkawood handle, allowing for a comfortable and firm grip. A mosaic pin was added to the middle of the handle, a small detail which makes this knife even more special. A stainless bolster was added for a smooth transition from the blade to the 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!
