This set contains a 17cm (6.7”) Nakiri, or Japanese vegetable, knife, a 13cm (5.2”) Shotoh utility and a 9cm (3.5”) Shotoh knife. These latter knives are ideal for the preparation of smaller cuts of meat and fruit and vegetables..

Combining the traditions and craftsmanship of Japanese sword makers with the excellence of German engineering this exquisite set of Japanese knives is a symbiosis of elegant design, latest technology and centuries-old knife-making art.

Miaybi 5000FCD blades are formed by 49 layers of steel with the central core layer having a Rockwell hardness of approximately 61. This core is sandwiched by 48 layers of softer steels, each rolled on top of each other creating a ‘Flower Damascus’ pattern that has become synonymous with this range. The FC61 core produces a sharpness and cutting edge retention measurably superior to ordinary knife steels.

With an ice hardened blade using the unique FRIODUR process which provides the blade with optimal edge retention, flexibility, and high corrosion resistance

Razor-like sharpness is achieved by a three-stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process called Honbazuke honing. The entire length of the cutting edge can be used as there is no finger guard.

The black Pakka Wood handle is wonderfully balanced and features a steel end cap with decorative pin and ring.

For best care, wash by hand, and maintain and sharpen using whetstones. We’d recommend using a wooden chopping board as opposed to glass, ceramic, plastic or stone boards as these will dull the cutting edge.
