Miyabi Kaizen II Prep Knife

MIYABI 5000 FCD Shotoh, 13cm (5.25")blade. The shotoh, or petty knife, is ideal for the preparation of smaller cuts of meat and fruit and vegetables. It has a fine carbide steel core with a hardness that gives very good cutting edge retention and initial sharpness. The core is embedded in 48 layers of steel which gives each blade its unique Damascus-design pattern. Razor-like sharpness is achieved by a three-stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process called Honbazuke honing. The entire length of the cutting edge can be used as there is no finger guard. For best care, wash by hand, and maintain and sharpen using whetstones. We’d recommend using a wooden chopping board as opposed to glass, ceramic or stone boards as these will dull the cutting edge.
