    Mcusta-Zanmai

    Every now and then something new comes along that I haven't seen and makes me stop and really check it out but not so much these days do I see something new that impresses. Well today I got in a gyuto for sharpening that had a pretty unique feature that I'll leave without description for you to figure out for yourself.

    BTW, this knife has a fantastic faint convex grind and pretty decent profile. I have no idea what this costs or if it's worth the price or not (it's VG-10) but it seems like a very nice knife from what I can gather holding it in my hands.

    I figured that some of you would like to see it as well.....

    It's "Zanmai" - no "sanmai"
