Tradition and artistry. These are words as revered by the
skilled craftspeople of Mundial as they are by Master Sushi

knife - top sushi chefs. Their expert consultation has enabled
Mundial to create a complete set of premium knives guaranteed to
provide a lifetime of use to both professional and home sushi

Much of the visual appeal of professionally-prepared sushi comes
from the clean, precise cuts of all ingredients. That’s why,
unlike other cutlery, sushi knives feature a single cutting edge
on each blade. By selecting the best alloys to ensure strength
and resilience, then tempering and honing each blade by hand for
maximum sharpness, Mundial makes it easy for home sushi chefs to
cut cleanly and accurately with a single stroke.
Each handle is ergonomically designed
Mundial's attention to detail in the design of the SUSHIMEN'S
LINE extends to the shapes, sizes and lengths of the knife
handles. Crafted from Amapá, a dense-grained hardwood, the
handles of the SUSHIMEN'S knives follow traditional designs.
Each one is tapered to fit the shape of the hand, ensuring a
comfortable grip and the proper cutting angle for its task. Some
of the knives feature an oval shape to ensure a secure grip, and
all SUSHIMEN'S knives are designed for both right- and

and processed under stringent quality assurance measures.

gaps between the blade and the handle.
Final Quality Inspection.
Mundial knives are fully tested throughout the manufacturing
process, then periodically reinspected after manufacture and

Care, Cleaning and Maintenance
According to Japanese cutlery tradition, SUSHIMEN'S knives have
wooden handles and dishwasher use is not recommended. Like all
fine cutlery, SUSHIMEN'S knives should be washed by hand with a
mild soap, dried immediately after use, and stored in a clean,
dry place. To prevent rusting and guarantee long life,
SUSHIMEN'S knives should not be left in contact with foods and
acid liquids for long periods of time, and users should avoid
cutting on hard surfaces such as metal or ceramics.
Sharpening SUSHIMEN'S Knives
With proper care and regular sharpening, SUSHIMEN'S LINE of
premium-quality sushi knives from Mundial will provide
professional and home sushi chefs with a lifetime of use while
maintaining their sharpness, quality and beauty. Sharpening
SUSHIMEN'S knives is best performed in a three-step process:
a natural Arkansas whetstone (Mundial Item #ZH-3) with Mundial
Honing Oil and position it on a waist-high work surface.
Gripping the SUSHIMEN'S knife by its handle, hold its blade
against the stone so that its beveled edge lies flat on the
surface of the stone. Applying firm and steady pressure, push
the blade against and across the stone in a smooth stroke,
beginning with the foot of the blade (nearest the handle) and
ending at the tip of the knife. Repeat several times until a
burr forms on the sharpened edge of the knife.
the knife over onto its flat side. Keeping the blade flat
against the stone and applying steady pressure, move it across
the stone from one end to the other in a spiral motion. Repeat
the complete honing procedure several times, reducing the
pressure on the blade each time.
2. Fine Honing
Switch to a Hard Arkansas (Mundial Item #ZH-4) whetstone and
repeat the procedures used in the first step.
3. Burnishing Switch to a Natural
Extra-Fine Honing Stone and repeat the procedures used in the
first two steps. Following these directions will result in a
razor-sharp knife with a brilliant mirror finish.
