More info

Taking Japanese knives to a whole new level, the Miyabi 5000MCD series offers kitchen knives that are the perfect combination of high quality, excellent performance, and superb aesthetics. Made by one of the most popular Japanese brands in the market; Miyabi, these knives have a sleek design and extraordinary cutting performance. Now wonder why the Miyabi 5000MCD knives are the dream of many cooks!

This is proven with the Miyabi 5000MCD Santoku Knife 18cm, which is a top quality knife that not only can help you perform all types of cuts in wide variety of foods but also will add a touch of elegance to your kitchen's equipment. With this santoku knife, you can easily cut any type of fruits and vegetables, and you can also use to cut meats. This knife is in fact the Japanese version of a Western chef knife.

You can tell that this knife is something special by just looking at its blade. Its core is enriched with Micro-Carbide MC63 that make the blade ultra rigid and solid. 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.

Moreover, the creation of the blade follows a very particular process in which a steel plate is created via the combination of 101 layers of soft and hard steel. The overlapping layers of damask steel end up not only enhancing the solidity of the blade but also the aesthetics of the knife. This is why the blade's surface is covered with original wavy lines, and this is what is commonly known as a damascus effect.

Also worthy of admiration, the handles matches perfectly with the beauty of the blade. It is made of birchwood, which is a lightweight material that feels comfortable in your hand. The traditional D-shape of the handle, common in most Japanese knives, provides an optimum balance, and to embellish even more its look, the centre of the handle is nicely decorated with a mosaic pin.

Finally, to take proper care of this high end kitchen knife you need to follow these tips: 1) you should always wash this knife by hand and dry it immediately after use., and 2) 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.
