About Mcusta Zanmai
The company value for MCUSTA Zanmai is 'Always Innovate' and under the third generation President Tomo Hasegawa the innovation continues.
Mcusta Zanmai are known as one of the most advanced knife workshops in Japan today. Their knives are laser cut, CNC milled to perfection and then assembled and sharpened to an enviable edge. Last century when the company began, they specialised in the exacting art of scissor making. Using this skill-set, the company expanded into a range of intricate pocket knives with precision mechanisms and an ever expanding range designs.
It's sometimes hard to believe that Mcusta Zanmai have only been making kitchen knives for about 13 years. In that short time they have become one of the most sought after knife brands among chefs globally.
Each year the waitlist for their knives becomes longer and longer but as their very first kitchen knife stockist Chef's Armoury always receives good supply.
We are very excited to present the Suzaku - Phoenix Limited Edition, the first of 4 series that will be released over the coming years. Each set is presented in a handmade kiriwood box.
- Keep dry and use camellia oil to protect against rust.
- Resin handles are not perfectly heat resistant, so keep away from a hot stove.
- Copper lines in the blade will change colour over time.
- The number of your limited edition set may be different to 18/50. Only 50 sets have been made worldwide.
