This Miyabi 500MCD-B Birchwood Gyutoh 8 inch knife is all-rounder for professional and hobby chefs. Also called a cook's knife, is a versatile kitchen knife available in various lengths of 6, 8, 10, and 12 inches. The heft, weight and balance of this knife allow it to be used for both heavy duty work with thicker cuts of vegetables, fruits and meats or mincing and chopping herbs. The curved blade enables a rocking cut and wide surface enables knuckle clearance and gathering of cut materials.
The traditional Japanese D-shaped handles are made of Masur Birchwood; famous for its warm tone and richly rippled grain. The elegant blade is formed as 101 layers of steel are precision ground to expose a beautiful flower Damask pattern and the wavy Katana edge exposes a cutting core of ultra-hard Micro-Carbide MC63 powdered steel. CRYODUR vacuum tempering & the three-step Honbazuke honing process ensures long-lasting cutting performance.
