Honbazuke: "The edge has now been awakened to use," say professional chefs in Japan. This is exactly what happens when the blade is honed on both sides. This makes the Gyotoh chef's knife from MIYABI extremely sharp! The 20 cm chef's knife with an authentic Japanese Honbazuke blade profile is part of the premium 5000MCD series. In Japan, a Gyutoh knife is typically only used for meat. However, the Gyutoh knife is equally suited to cutting vegetables into the very finest strips – effortlessly and safely. Each knife is unique due to the unique Damask pattern on the blade. The blade itself is incredibly hard, due to a special process. Following Japanese tradition, the handle is made of birch wood and is shaped to sit well balanced in the hand. The attractive chef's knife not only impresses with its sharpness, but also with its cutting edge retention.
