MIYABI 5000 MCD 8 inch Gyutoh
The 20 cm long GYUTOH from the MIYABI 5000MCD range is very impressive due to its relatively thin and yet stable blade with an authentic Japanese blade profile. The cutting edge is honed symmetrically at an angle of 19° providing the dual-edged Honbazuke blade with incredible sharpness, enabling you to accomplish even the finest work with ease. The blade consists of a Micro Carbide MC63 powder steel core embedded in 100 further layers of steel. This provides the basis for the distinctive Damask pattern which makes every knife in this range truly unique. The CRYODUR® blade is also ice-hardened at -196°C in a special process, which ensures a hardness of approx. 63 Rockwell. The D-shaped handle is a real eye-catcher while ensuring ease of use. It is made from beautiful Masur birch, keeping its style traditional. This wood is characterised by its unique pattern of changing lines and stripes. Thanks to its perfect balance, the handle ensures effortless and effective working, giving you maximum control while cutting. The GYUTOH from Miyabi is a knife of exceptional cutting strength.

Aesthetics have played a key role in Japanese cuisine since time immemorial. The look of a dish and the way it is presented on the plate are just as much a part of the pleasure as its taste and aroma. In the kitchen, Japanese chefs are just as demanding where aesthetics are concerned as they are with functionality. The MIYABI 5000MCD series of knives provides professionals and ambitious amateur chefs with a set of precision knives that combine perfect functionality and ergonomics with unique design.
Each handle made of top-quality Masur birch is also unique. The structure of the wood handle is reflected through the interplay of lines and stripes. The warmth of the natural wood contrasts nicely with the steel blade. A mosaic pin finishes off the sophisticated look.
The traditional Japanese ‘D-shaped’ handle ensures all handle styles are ergonomic and enables you to work without tiring. The ‘D-shaped’ handle is rounded off at its end with a decorative end cap with a logo.
The blade core made of MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is surrounded by 100 layers of two different types of steel with different levels of hardness. MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is a high-grade steel for the highest demands.
SLEEK DAMASK DESIGN
A special blade treatment alters the surface structure of each layer, giving each blade its individual floral damask pattern.
This traditional Japanese Honbazuke honing gives every blade its incomparable sharpness. The 19° symmetrical blade is the result of v-edge honing.
EXTREMELY HARD BLADE
The CRYODUR® blade is hardened using a specially developed ice-hardening process at -196°C that guarantees extreme hardness of 63 Rockwell and a lasting sharp blade.
