The word "ZANMAI" originally means "to be immersed" in Buddhist terminology, and the "ZANMAI" brand of kitchen knives was born out of the wish for users to be immersed in cooking.

Seki is one of the leading production centers of Japanese SAMURAI swords and is the best embodiment of the concept of “Perfect sharpness, non-snapping, non-bending”. The traditional skill of the sword, which exemplifies its excellent sharpness, is also greatly demonstrated in "ZANMAI".

The quality of ZANMAI Tactical Scissors

Damascus steel, which has a characteristic laminated pattern, is a stainless steel material also used for high-end kitchen knives. The 67 layer pattern created by repeated stacking makes it resistant to rust and has excellent durability. Ingredients that are difficult to cut, such as meat with tendons, hard vegetables, and lobsters with a hard shell, can be easily cut with a knife-like sharpness. It will shorten your cooking preparation time.

The most important thing for cooking is hygiene. Especially after washing, the pivot screw of the scissor is where bacteria remains. But these scissors are separable by each blade, thus there is no need to worry about unwashed parts or rust.
