Those wishing to discover artisan knife craftsmanship with a century-old tradition, can’t go wrong with the MIYABI 4000FC Koh series of knives. The hard and resilient blade is manufactured using ice-hardened FC61 steel that can withstand great strain. This special steel’s great sharpness and edge holding ability come from the incredible fine Katana-edge cut that can also be found on masterfully-manufactured Japanese swords. The octagonally-formed bolster and Pakkawood handles are not solely aesthetic in nature, with this design you benefit from safe, comfortable handling that leads to effortless and tire free work. The unique handles also display an elegant accent of a mosaic pin. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
