The Mcusta Katana MC-42C is a razor-sharp and high-quality pocket knife, made in ‘knife town’ Seki, Japan. Although the name suggests otherwise, this Katana is absolutely no sword! The total opened length of 19.5 cm is an ideal size for EDC-use. The aluminum handle feels comfortable and the coloured cutouts provide a pleasant grip. An additional advantage is that aluminum is very light in weight, so you will hardly feel the Katana inside your pocket.
The blade of the Katana is forged from beautiful VG10-damask. VG10 steel is a type of steel that can be sharpened to a really sharp result. Mcusta delivers the knife razor-sharp as well, so it will be a while before you need to sharpen it.
Opening the Mcusta Katana goes very smoothly through the double thumb stud and the characteristic nylon washers (rings) around the pivot. The blade is locked in the open position by a solid liner-lock. Unique to this knife is that they have only put one steel liner on the locking side of the handle. The pocket clip comes out of this liner and it is therefore impossible to remove or switch sides.
The Mcusta Katana is a true Japanese work of art for a great price!
