Steel specifications:

Aogami Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the best Japanese carbon. In addition to containing more carbon, chromium and tungsten than Blue Steel, it also includes molybdenum. It has excellent cutting ability and excellent thread retention. Aogami Super is also capable of achieving high hardness without being brittle. Many knife enthusiasts consider Aogami Super to be one of the best high carbon steels in the world.

The city of Seki in Japan has been the center of producing the best Japanese blades since the mid-13th century. Natural choice thanks to its wealth of natural resources: sand, iron, coal and water, all important elements for the processing of blades. The techniques and skills of the ancient blacksmiths, handed down over the centuries, have currently been combined with modern technologies. The city of Seki still remains today the center of production of the best Japanese blades.

Mcusta knives are made in Seki and are the pinnacle of this synthesis between Japanese artisan tradition and modern technology. Each knife is assembled by hand, finished and checked by the craftsmen of the Mcusta team. Mcusta knives are considered among the best in the world!
