Description

MIYABI 5000 FCD Santoku, 18cm blade length. This Japanese santoku has a hard fine carbide steel core for very good cutting edge retention and sharpness. Santoku translates as "Three Virtues", these being meat, fish and vegetables. The flat cutting edge lends itself to a chopping motion rather than the rocking cutting movement of European chef's knives. The blade core is surrounded by 48 outer layers of steel which make up the unique Damascus-design pattern on the blade. The cutting edge is Honbazuke-honed and symmetrical (not single bevel), so can be used by those both right and left-handed. There is no finger guard so the whole length of the cutting edge can be used. The handle and half-bolster join seamlessly for comfortable use. The smooth surface helps to prevent the formation of calluses on the thumb and forefinger. Hand wash only for best care, and maintain and sharpen using a whetstone. We’d recommend using a wooden chopping board rather than glass, ceramic or stone boards as these will dull the cutting edge.

Miyabi Kaizen II 7-inch Santoku Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated Kaizen II is a home run If you liked the sharpness of the original Kaizen, but found the handle a little foreign, then it might be time to reconsider the Kaizen line. The handle and the bolster were beefed up to provide more feedback with a firm pinch grip. The 49-layers of steel are hand finished to an extremely sharp edge that holds. It has a double Damascus pattern that is stunning. This santoku blade shape is set at just the right angle so that when you are chopping the knife finishes the downward motion automatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calling all vegetarians! We are a vegetable focused family and I needed a knife to make all the copping required for our diet not to seem like such a chore. This knife makes cutting vegies such a pleasure. The edge is fine enough to get super narrow slices yet strong enough to tackle those pesky squashes. Stays sharp for a long time with proper honing. The damascus layering is really pretty and seems to create a slight non-stick property to the blade. Cucumbers and potatoes fall away easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Miyabi Kaizen-Santoku is one of the great knives to own! You can feel you are using a supreme knife by the way it cuts and feels in your hand. The 48 layers around the core let you know this is the best quality and will last a lifetime, if taken care of. This is definitely more for chopping than cutting or slicing but can use for meats, fish and veggies. A truly all-around everyday superior knife to own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Choosing a Japanese Santoku look no further Miyabi Kaizen is one of the best loved knives by people who know. A true Japanese piece of art, the core is made from steel that retains it's razor sharp edge and is then covered in 48 layers of stainless steel to create the beautiful pattern. The santoku style is perfect for all your chopping and slicing. You can achieve paper thin slices of vegetable as well as fine dicing and julienne strips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great update I had looked at the original Kaizen line a wile ago and the changes they made with this new line are impressive. First they added just a touch of girth to the handle. It fits much better in my hand. Second the change in steel. The FC61 that is used is so much more durable. The edge holds forever and is super easy to sharpen. I like how they kept true to the Damascus styling on the blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty and Functionality This is one of the most beautiful knives I've ever seen and I love how it feels in my hand. The handle is nice and curved and feels like it was made for my hand. I love the pattern on the blade and love displaying it in my kitchen. I love that this knife has a wide blade that makes it easy for me to transfer the vegetables I've chopped from the cutting board to the pan in one move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Santoku is one of my favorite knives to use in the kitchen due to the versatility of the blade profile. You can use the santoku on meat, poultry and vegetables, and will find that it is easy work with the D-shape handle which fits perfectly in the hand. This knife is sharp and will retain it sharpness due to the FC61 steel and the special ice-hardening process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miyabi Kaizen ll is one of the best loved knives since it's launch and is still wildly popular today. I love the feel of it in my hand and love the beauty of this knife as well; a win-win for me. The Santoku has become one of my most used knives in the kitchen due to it's versatility. I use it for vegetable and meat (not a fish eater) and it glides through it all.
