The SANTOKU 5000MCD from MIYABI is a unique piece of finesse with a perfect function and an absolutely unique design. With its length of 18 cm, the SANTOKU or "3-way knife" is the Japanese version of the chef's knife, but unlike our European chef's knife, the tip of the blade is rounded. This knife is ideal for cutting meat, fish and vegetables.
Made of a MicroCarbide MC63 steel core and coated with 100 layers of two kinds of steel, giving the blade a unique damask pattern, with an exceptional hardness of about 63 Rockwell. This hardness is also associated with the specific CRYODUR treatment, a unique cooling process that makes the knife sharp, flexible and resistant.
This knife is hand sharpened in the purest Japanese tradition, using the traditional "Honbazuke" method which gives the blade an incomparable edge. It also features a unique birch D-handle inlaid with a mosaic and finished with a steel tip surrounded by a thin red border.
Authentic Japanese blade profile with a symmetrical 19° angle
