The Mu Bamboo knife collection by Messermeister offers a perfectly fit and finished handle material of carbonized, layered natural bamboo to a high-carbon, molybdenum, vanadium stanless alloy blade. Tempered to a higher Rockwell and honed to a razor-like sharpness, the Mu Bamboo reflects the highest quality knife making known in Seki, Japan. The combination of Eastern and Western philosophy, culture and material makes for a perfectly blended knife.
The Messermeister Mu Bamboo 6.5" Santoku Knife, also known as a Japanese Chefs Knife, is a wide blade knife with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chefs Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. The Santoku Knife is one of the worlds most popular knives. The spine runs parallel to the relatively flat cutting edge, which has a bolsterless heel and only curves near the tip to create a broad bladed knife similar in shape to a cleaver.
