I found a series of these knives from a wholesaler in Georgia in 2006. We sold out with in a week. I started emailing the company begging to carry their blades. After 6 years and countless unanswered emails we finally had a response. Tomohiro Hasegawa would travel to Saint Louis to meet with us. This Classic Flame line is Mcusta's Flagship Line. Each blade made with 33 layer Damascus sandwiched around a VG-10 core for premium cutting performance.
