More info

With kitchen knives that are the perfect combination of high quality, excellent performance, and superb aesthetics, the Miyabi 5000MCD series is undoubtedly one of the best knife ranges available on our site! Their sleek design and their extraordinary cutting performance make the Miyabi 5000MCD knives the dream of any cook!

This is proven with the Miyabi 5000MCD Shotoh 13cm shown in this page. This utility knife (shotoh is the Japanese term for it) is the ideal type of knife for cutting all types of fruits and vegetables. Thanks to its versatility and its superb cutting performance, this knife is must-have in every kitchen!

Starting by the blade, you can tell this knife is like no other. The blade's core is enriched with Micro-Carbide MC63 that give the blade an extraordinary solidity. Moreover, following the CRYODUR technique, the blade was ice-hardened with temperatures reaching as low as -196°C. The final result is a blade with 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.

Complementing the beauty of the blade, the handle is also worthy of admiration. It is made of birchwood, which is a lightweight material that 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 finish its sophisticated look, the centre of the handle is nicely decorated with a mosaic pin.

A knife of this quality can be easily considered a piece of art, and thus, it deserves to be treated as such. Therefore, 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. The use of a sharpening steel could end up damaging the blade.
