Traditional Japanese blade making methods were being influenced by modern technology and recent innovations in steel production, mentioned a blacksmith called Yasuhisa Hasegawa. The result is our Zanmai Musou Collection. This series is offered to the world as “first-class products selected by sensitivity” and are highly evaluated. In Zanmai Musou series, there is powder steel at the core, a steel that keeps its sharpness extremely long and a steel that is not only hard, but also tough. The name Musou is Japanese for – incomparably good, a name the knife lives up to. The core steel in R2 is hardened to 62 – 64 HRC. The blade is very thin, which gives you wonderful cutting properties and an optimal knife. The handles of the Zanmai Musou Collection are composed of Light Pakkawood with mosaic pin using a rounded base for a comfortable grip. The full tang and mid bolster give outstanding balance and comfort. Each knife is packaged in its Black cardboard gift box. Wash by soft sponge with kitchen detergent and rinse well after use.
