The MIYABI Black 5000MCD series is a true work of art. The ergonomic and traditional D-shaped handle of unique Bigleaf Maple that is dyed a black ash colour, displays a beautiful grain that contrasts with the flower pattern on the Damascus of the blade. Strong as well as stunning, the blades are constructed of micro-carbide powdered MC66 steel, which is ice-hardened to an impressive 66 HRC. This results in an exceptionally sharp and lasting edge. The blade is then wrapped in 132 additional layers of steel to create that gorgeous Damascus pattern. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
