This small paring knife is called a Japanese "Shotoh" which is used as a vegetable knife. It peels, cuts, and garnishes fruits and vegetables with ease.
Miyabi Kaizen II knives have a fine carbide steel core that has a Rockell hardness of 61. This results in a very good cutting edge retention and is extremely sharp.
It is embedded in 48 outer layers of Damascus-design steel giving each knife a unique pattern. The edge is Honbazuke-honed - a three stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process resulting in razor-like sharpness.
Comes with a Pakka wood handle. Hand washing is recommended.
Manufactured in Japan.
