They say there’s a knife for every purpose. But, there’s a strong possibility all of your other knives will become obsolete once you discover the sterling quality, and unparalleled sharpness of the Miyabi 5000 MCD Santoku Knife. Favored by some of the world’s most distinguished chefs for its flawless cutting performance, the 5000 MCD Santoku (Japanese for “three virtues”) boasts a super-fine, floral-etched Katana blade that lends it to all manner of slicing, dicing and mincing tasks. Limited for space in your kitchen? Be it for vegetables, fish, or meat, the Santoku can be used in place of virtually any knife – and will still deliver optimal results!
Honed by skilled Japanese craftsmen employing a traditional technique known as Honbazuke, each blade is precisely angled between 9.5 and 12 degrees per side for phenomenal sharpness. A vision of beauty to behold, the 7-inch blade hides 101 layers of Micro-Carbide MC63 powdered Damascus steel, which have been refined to expose the wonderfully intricate, etched flower patinas on both sides. Each knife further undergoes the ZWILLING J. A. Henckels trademark, CRYODUR® 4-step tempering treatment to create an ultra-resistant, corrosion-proof blade that will outlast all others.
If you’re the kind of chef who loves to showcase magnificent kitchenware, the Miyabi 5000 MCD Santoku Knife will not disappoint. Shaped in the traditional Japanese ‘D’ style, the richly flecked, Karelian (Masur) Birch wood handles reflect the stunning floral patina of the blade, with subtly engraved wildfire burls from the base to the guard. Finished with a decorative mosaic pin and end-cap featuring the Miyabi logo, this exquisite example of traditional Japanese craftsmanship will take pride of place on any open configuration knife block!
