  • MIYABI 5000 FCD Shotoh, 9cm blade.
  • This Japanese shotoh, also known as a vegetable knife, has a hard fine carbide steel core which gives very good cutting edge retention and sharpness.
  • It is light weight and nimble, and suited for cutting, peeling small fruit and vegetables.
  • The FC61 steel core of the blade is embedded in 48 outer layers of Damascus-design steel, giving each knife its unique pattern.
  • The cutting edge is symmetrical (not single bevel) so it’s suitable for both right and left-handed use.
  • The edge is Honbazuke-honed – a three-stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process resulting in razor-like sharpness. There is no finger guard so the whole length of the cutting edge can be used.
  • The Pakka wood handle seamlessly joins the half-bolster. The smooth join helps to prevent calluses forming on the thumb and forefinger.
  • For best care, it’s recommended to hand wash only.
  • Maintain and sharpen on a whetstone, and using glass, ceramic or stone cutting boards should be avoided as this can prematurely dull the cutting edge.
