Mcusta Zanmai “Beyond” 210

Excellent presentation with the box
Scary Sharp! I’ll keep it, in its box when not in us

The f and f is next level. Everything was perfect. The spine is super thin and allows me to cut sashimi even better than my yanagabi. It leaves no evidence of trauma on the fish at all and cuts evenly even with a 50/50 bevel. The super blue steel patina is beautiful against the stainless steel clad. Even though this knife is long because of its light weight and kiritsuke shape I can mince shallots with ease. The reason I was initially attracted to this knife is because in the pictures it appears to have a more curved edge than other kiritsuke knives. I was hoping it would be excellent for rocking and I was correct. The handle is a more unique shape than a traditional Japanese knife and it makes admiring this knife special.

Overall I am really loving this knife

This is my fist knife I’ve ever bought

This knife is nice I like how simple it looks but baddass at the same time honestly the more I use it the more I like it , it’s really sharp as well.

Mcusta Zanmai "Beyond" A/S kiritsuke gyuto

1st off, the box presentation is great, plus the fit and finish on the knife is quite beautiful. This is the 2nd Mcusta knife I've owned and they really put the effort in. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because from a fast-paced, professional kitchen standpoint, the knife is a bit light and thin. For slow, precision work, this knife rocks but from an all-around prep perspective, the looks outweigh the function.

This is by and large the best knife that I have ever owned. Razor sharp, great edge retention, not totally stainless but not far off, 240mm is the perfect size for the knife as well. Perfectly balanced and comfortable, everything about this is amazing. If I really had to pick and choose, the blade is ever so slightly too curved, making a direct chop or slicing motions slightly more difficult to cut all the way through a product, but you can always use other methods of cutting. Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong lol
