Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Like a fine wine
It seems strange that Mcusta knives don't get more attention. They are universally refined, magnificent, and scalpel-sharp. The Katana model is a nice compromise between visual elegance and practical toughness, a good choice for when you want a gentlemen's knife that can still do hard work. Like other Mcusta knives, it opens incredibly smoothly, and locks up nice and tight. The pattern on the blade catches your eye, as do the vivid colors on the handle. And of course, the blade cuts like a scalpel, outperforming any other knife it its price range. The pocket clip is not removable, which is a concern if you tend to remove the clips from your knives, however it isn't bulky or uncomfortable and doesn't really need removing. What stands out most is the level of thought that went into this knife, down to the smallest detail. If you have the eye, or the interest, to appreciate fine workmanship, you will definitely appreciate owning an Mcusta like this one.
