Miyabi – 5000FCD Shotoh Paring 9cm (Made in Japan)

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 its 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, its 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.
