The liners feature delicate jimping all the way around. Each knife is individually serial numbered on the bottom side of the blade tang. It comes in a wooden presentation box with padded interior, paper, and a shelf display stand.
This is the latest Platinum Label custom limited edition knife, themed as the "Japanese Four Seasons". The Japanese National Treasure art screen shows floating folding fans in the water called "Oogi Nagashi" which was once graceful entertainment for aristocrats in medieval Japan. This traditional event is still held every May at the Mifune festival in Kyoto.
Mcusta has intricately portrayed this scene on a brass handle with black coated trim representing a gold screen, and the folding fan in flowing stream is created by a patina finish (a bright bluish-green encrustation or patina formed on brass by atmospheric oxidation). It is a time-consuming process, and over time you will enjoy a color changes.
This Mcusta Platinum Label knife is limited to only 50 pieces per season with the serial number engraved on the blade heel.
