The Mu Fusion knife collection by Messermeister blends the best of Eastern and Western Culture, sytles and materials. The Eastern shaped handles are a phenolic resin based, black laminate of linen fibers. The handles are attached to a Western formula blade that has been tempered to a higher Rockwell and honed to a razor-like sharpness. The Mu Fusion reflects the beauty of Seki, Japan and exhibits the tradition of Japanese knife making.
The Messermeister Mu Fusion 10.1/2" Sashimi Knife has a long, narrow, single edge, pointed blade that measures anywhere from 240 mm to 360 mm. The most popular blade lengths are 240-270 mm for most home chefs and 270-300 mm for most professionals.
Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
Do not place in dishwasher.
Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
The single edged blade is generally used with a pull cut technique and is used to cut (straight or on a bias) raw fish. The long heavy blade allows for a longer pull cut with less pressure, which helps to hold the shape of the fragile raw fish.
