Mcusta Zanmai’s “Beyond Blue” series is innovative and traditional at the same time. Beyond expectations and yet, firmly fashioned after tradition; it is exceptionally thin, lightweight, sharp, sporting a K-Tip and curved blade profiles for clean slicing and fine cuts.

Beyond’s blades are sanmai construction, cladded with stainless on the outside safeguarding the Super Aogami (Blue#2 carbon) steel in the core (HRC 64) and hosting a mirror polish edge, which will give way to a natural patina with use.

These blades are complimented with a traditional, octagonal Wa handle made from non-stabilized natural wood, accessorized by a decorative pin, and twisted for remarkable comfort.

While not a workhorse knife, it can assist in the most delicate jobs and thinnest cuts for both professionals and avid home chefs. The Beyond series performs as expected from hand-finished Japanese cutlery and has great edge retention to stay slicing longer
