A small and unique piece of finesse with perfect function and a unique design, this is the SHOTOH 5000MCD from Miyabi. With its 9 cm length, its very thin and strong blade is ideal when you want to cut, peel or clean vegetables or fruits.
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 combined 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 sharpness. It also features a unique birch D-handle inlaid with a mosaic and finished with a steel tip surrounded by a thin red border.
