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 opposite of concave is convex! The Messermeister Mu Fusion 6.5" Dot Knife uses this principle to assist in lowering the friction coefficient of tension that exists because many fruits and vegetables are naturally attracted to the side of the blade. Breaking the tension is tantamount to a more efficient cut, not to mention that this Santoku with it's beautiful linen textured black handle looks like a piece of modern art. Oh, and did we forget to say it has an AUS 6 high carbon steel blade that is really really sharp!
