Mu Bamboo Japanese Steel Knives
East meets West, on your cutting board.
Take Messermeister’s obsession with quality and combine with exacting Japanese craftsmanship and the result is this beautiful collection of Japanese steel knives. Each knife is crafted in Seki, Japan, and forged from a single blank of fine Japanese, high-carbon steel and honed to razor-like sharpness. The natural bamboo handles are not only eco-friendly, they also look stunning. Whether you’re using a small utility knife or a 10” sashimi knife, you’re guaranteed perfectly chiffonaded herbs and pristinely sliced crudo every time.
The collection includes a paring knife, utility knife, Santoku knife, chef’s knife, 8.5” sashimi knife, 10” sashimi knife, bread knife, slicing knife, and usuba knife, all of which are sold separately.
