Mcusta Zanmai is a leader in the Japanese knife industry. Their modern Japanese designs and technologically advanced workshop are the envy of their peers.

Mcusta Zanmai Knifemaker
Modern Knives from Seki, Japan.
Always forward thinking, MCUSTA embrace Japanese tradition while pushes the boundaries of modern technology to create innovative collections of Japanese knives.
Thousands of hours of research go into each new Japanese knife design using 3D CAD to ensure the ultimate in ergonomics.
From there, individual components are CNC machined or laser cut. After highly specialized sub zero tempering, the blades are ground using high tech machines with the accuracy of 1/1000th of a degree. The knives are then further refined on Japanese waterstones by master MCUSTA craftsmen.
Chef’s Armoury are proud to be the exclusive distributors of MCUSTA Zanmai knives in Australia.
Mcusta Zanmai Testimonials
The handle design gives such a comfortable and secure grip. I’ve used many knife brands in the past, however no knife has produced such clean accurate and precise cuts.LUKE NGUYEN Red Lantern Restaurant Chef/Restaurateur, Sydney, Australia
My Mcusta Zanmai Hammer 210 gyuto is easily the best knife I have owned. Perfect balance of weight between the blade and handle. The hammer finish makes chopping a breeze, a lot more efficient than a 'granton' edge. Also holds an edge like no other knife I have owned.MILAN STRBAC Sugarcane Restaurant Head Chef, Sydney, Australia
This knife (Mcusta Zanmai Hammer 240 gyuto) combines two of my favorite traits in the kitchen, beauty and functionality. I mainly use this knife as my work horse for a whole range of work due to it's broader blade and offset bevel.STEPHEN SECKOLD Flying Fish Restaurant Executive Chef, Sydney, Australia
