Crafted in Seki City—Japan’s cutlery capital—the Mcusta MC-1 Basic Series combines the functionality of an all-around blade with the aesthetics of a gentleman’s folder. Slim and unobtrusive, the knife weighs just 3.4 ounces, yet it measures nearly 8 inches long to tackle more strenuous tasks. The 3.4-inch blade is made from your choice of VG-10 or 33-layered nickel Damascus with a VG-10 core. Press on one of the thumbstuds to rotate it open. It locks in place with the liner lock. The handle, available in five different materials (from sleek black micarta to handsome Indian Rosewood), features undulating grooves for grip. When held at different angles it glistens in the light. The satin clip plays nicely off of the handle, providing deep tip-down carry on the right side.
Note: At checkout, you select one of ten combinations with handle material of African Ebony wood, black micarta, Dupont Corian (+$5), Indian rosewood, or Quince burl wood (+ $35). You can also select a blade steel from VG-10 or Damascus with VG-10 core (+ $15). Quantities of each are limited. See the specs and checkout options for more details. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
Since the mid-13th century, Seki City has been the cutlery hub of Japan. Thanks to its close proximity to rich sources of iron sand, charcoal, and water, it was a natural choice for skilled craftsman of old, and remains so today. Mcusta, located in Seki City, blends traditional artistry with modern technology. Each of its knives is laser cut, CNC machined, and assembled and finished by hand to ensure the utmost quality.
