Additional Information
MIYABI 5000 FCD Gyutoh, 20cm blade. The gyutoh, or chef’s knife, is a general purpose knife for the preparation of larger cuts of meat and vegetables. It has a fine carbide steel core which gives the knife very good initial sharpness and cutting edge retention. The core is embedded in 48 layers of steel which create each knife’s unique Damascus-design. The symmetrical cutting edge is Honbazuke honed. This three-stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process gives the knife razor-like sharpness. The entire length of the edge can be used to cut as there is no finger guard. The join between handle and bolster is completely smooth, which helps to prevent calluses forming on the thumb and forefinger and gives a comfortable grip. Hand wash only for best care and avoid cutting on glass, ceramic or stone boards as these will prematurely dull the edge. Maintain and sharpen using whetstones.

Miyabi Kaizen II 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like the balance on this knife. It slices so thinly that you can use it instead of a mandoline. This is my go to knife when I have a lot of meat and veggies to cut up. The damascus is beautiful and the handle feels smooth and secure in your hand.

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 gyutoh (Western style chef's) blade shape has a sweeping arc for ease of use when making julienne, or chiffonade slices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Better, Cuts Better! This will be one of the best Miyabi knife you can have. It is sharp, outstanding inside out with a D shape handle.. So, it is another must have Kaizen knife though Kaizen II has a more intirquit damascus pattern creating barrier between the setel and the food you cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This knife has a beautiful damascus pattern made out of FC61 steel which is a tough hard metal that has great edge retention. With the new handle design the knife feels good in right or left hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Japanese Chef knife This is a really great Japanese Chef knife. The Kaizen II has a beautiful blade and the Micarta wood handle feels really smooth in hand, and has a nice roundedness to it. With the blade having 48 layers of steel, you can really feel how much of a difference that makes when cutting fish, meat or produce. A great knife to have in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Cutting Edge This knife is created from the durable FC61 steel and has an additional 48 layers of protection surrounding the core. My favorite think about this knife is the handle, its reminiscent of the traditional Japanese D shaped handle but is more rounded - so comfortable for working on big jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my favorite Miyabi lines and knives. The classic Miyabi handle is ultra comfortable while the mega sharp 8" blade easily tackles numerous prep tasks. The beautiful damascus pattern and layers reenforce the strength and durability that is expected in an Asian knife.
