More info

When you combine high quality, excellent performance, and superb aesthetics, you get exceptional products such as the ones from the Miyabi 5000MCD series! Appreciated by the way they cut, loved by the way they look, and desired by all cooks, the Miyabi 5000MCD knives are truly fantastic! 

To prove the great quality offered by this refined knife range, you can start by testing the Miyabi 5000MCD Shotoh 9cm. This paring knife (shotoh is the Japanese term for it) is ideal fro peeling and cutting with incredible ease your small fruits and vegetables. Easy to use and handle, it is an indispensable knife in every kitchen!

Despite a length of only 9 centimeters, the blade is truly a masterpiece. It has an ultra rigid core enriched with Micro-Carbide MC63 that give the blade an extraordinary hardness. Moreover, the blade went tthrough the CRYODUR technique, which consists in ice-hardening the blade reaching a temperature as low as -196°C. That explains why the blade reaches a high level of hardness of 63 HRC in the Rockwell scale.

To be even more robust and also to have an astonishing look, the creation of the blade followed a very particular process in which a steel plate is created via the combination of 101 layers of soft and hard steel. This is what is commonly known as a damascus effect, and it is why you can see the original wavy lines on the blade's surface.

The blade, however, isn't the only thing to admire from this knife. In fact, the handle is also a feature that denotes high quality and refined design. It is made of birchwood, which is lightweight and feels comfortable in your hand. The D-shape of the handle, which is a traditional characteristic of Japanese knives, provides an optimum balance for the entire knife. To top it off, the centre of the handle has a mosaic pin that finishes to confirm the sophisticated look of the knife.

A knife of this quality can be easily considered a piece of art, and thus, it deserves to be treated as such. This is why to preserve its quality and its look, you should always wash this knife by hand and dry it immediately after use. In addition, for whenever you need to sharpen the blade (which won't be that often), make sure to use only whetstones with fine grains. Any other type of sharpener could end up damaging the blade.

Great knife
Lesley O. on 16/04/2018 A beautiful knife which is very sharp (as expected) and lightweight making it easy to use for tricky tasks. It took 2 weeks rather than 1 to arrive. MyChefKnives responded very quickly to my queries, excellent customer service. Would have given 5 stars if arrived in time.
