Product detail

Introducing the Zanmai flagship - ZANMAI ULTIMATE ARANAMI.

At first glance, this indicates that this is not an ordinary knife. Aranami means sea waves in Japanese and just those

perform an incredible dance on his blade. Such a pattern is difficult to paint on, not to mention forging. It succeeded thanks to the "coreless" construction. The blade does not have a traditional core, but alternating layers of stainless steel VG-10 and VG-2. The resulting material is more resistant to twisting at high temperatures. In addition, in this design / VG-2 and VG-10 / it creates a more pronounced drawing than the classic damascene material. Unlike other manufacturers, the blade is not stamped, but laser-cut, 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 on horizontal rotating whetstones. Unlike traditional single-bevelled eastern knives, Hamaguri is based on a "V" base blade, with its sides slightly convex in shape. Such a blade is robust enough, but it can make a cut without unwanted fibre deformation, thus preventing the escape of juices and fats.

Zanmai Ultimate Aranami knife handles are truly ultimate. In this class, "dress code" is without

debaty octagonal shape. Since the knife should be not only beautiful but also long-term reliable, the manufacturer made handles from the proven pakka wood material in brown-red color. A decorative accessory are trim rivets. The bolster as well as the tailpiece of the handle are milled from an alloy of nickel and silver, thus meeting the strictest antibacterial parameters. Each edge is carefully sharpened by an experienced craftsman. The final product thus bears the marks of perfection.

Quality perfumes are packaged in imaginative flacons, jewelry in precision casettes. This is no different with Zanmai Ultimate Aranami knives. You will get them in a stylish wooden box, which you will definitely not want to say goodbye to. If that's not enough, you can order a traditional lacquered wooden case "saya" that protects the blade of your jewelry..

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.
