Elwin de Veld about Zanmai Mcusta
President Tomohiro Hasegawa, is young compared to other knife factory owners in Seki region. The company itself is also relatively young in the tradition of knife makers. Making chef knives now for a little more then 10 years, the focus was was always on scissors and pocket knives. All knowledge in the past years gained is passed to the new generation. This combined with new technologies makes Zanmai a well respected knifemaker.
"We are classmates", as Tomo san always refers to when we meet. Both born in 1974, living the knife life and passionated in what we do: Zanmai!
