Product detail

Supreme Hammered is another luxury line of the Zanmai brand. It boasts a proven 33-layer damascene blade. The core / hagane / is made of high carbon VG-10 stainless steel. It is lined on both sides with 16 layers of interlaced steel with different hardness.

This is where manufacturers usually end their process. However, Marusho Inc. does not. The upper part of the blade is hammered and then polished to a high gloss. The company carefully protects the method of this hammering. The result is surprisingly expressive. It resembles clouds over the sea.

Unlike other manufacturers, the blade is not stamped but cut by laser, which ensures maximum accuracy. The company's specialty is rough grinding of the blade before hardening. The result is a harder blade edge. The edge is hand-ground to Hamaguri shape on horizontal rotating whetstones. Unlike traditional single-bevelled eastern knives, Hamaguri is based on a basic "V" shape, with slightly convex sides. Such a blade is robust enough, but it can make a cut without unwanted fibre deformation, thus preventing leak of juices and fats.

The handles made of stabilized pakka wood in brown-red color are elegantly bevelled at the end. They have a

octagon profile, which is expected in the high-end class. In the middle of the handle is a decorative pin borrowed from musical instruments. It is worth noting the perfectly smooth transition of the handle into a bolster made of nickel-silver alloy, which has excellent antibacterial properties. It is possible to order a natural lacquered saya case made of magnolia wood.

About producer

Mcusta Zanmai

Marusho Industry Inc. - a company producing refined Mcusta pocket knives, luxurious Zanmai kitchen knives and iconic Silky scissors - located in the center of Japanese cutlery, in the city of Seki. The city gained this status already in the middle of the 13th century thanks to sand with a rich content of iron ore, high-quality peat and water sources. These were the reasons why the renowned sword maker Motoshige relocated to this area from the island of Kyushu. During the Muromachi period (1338-1573), more than 300 blacksmiths worked in Seki. Among the most famous were Kanemoto Magoroku and Saburo Shizu. Seki swords quickly gained a reputation throughout Japan.

The Marusho company was founded in 1964. Today, it is run by the founder's grandson and his family. It operates one of the most advanced knife factories not only in the city of Seki, but in all of Japan. Thanks to advanced technologies (laser cutters, CNC mills, 3D CAD/CAM projection), the company produces products refined to the smallest detail. The best example is Zanmai brand kitchen knives. But without manual finalization by experienced craftsmen, the products would be far from perfect.

Zanmai means Luxury in Japanese. However, the word is actually derived from the Sanskrit "Samadhi", which is the term for the process of meditation leading to consciousness. It is not known how deeply the Hasegawa clan devotes itself to meditation, but this matter is more than clear. Their knives are consciously polished to the highest luxury.
