The Miyabi Isshin Series of knives are produced in Seki City, Japan. A layer of High Carbon Stainless Steel (AUS8) is sandwiched between two layers of soft steel which is laser cut to the final shape. With expert heat treatment, the blade is hardened to 57:59 HRC resulting in an enduring edge that is easy to resharpen. The handle is made of laminated rosewood. This is one of the best entry-level series of knives we sell.GYUTO (Gyu – cow & To – sword): This is the Japanese interpretation of a Western Chef’s knife. It is flat from the handle end for about 1/3rd of the edge and then curves to the tip. It is ideal for the Western style of roll cutting. Function – Multipurpose chef knife. For Slicing, Dicing, Mincing, Filleting and Chopping of meat, fish and vegetables. Normal length – 180mm to 300mm. Tip: With the edge flat for about 1/3rd of the blade – 210 mm or longer the knife-edge profile is the same as a 180mm Santoku from the handle to tip and the same as a 180mm Gyuto from the tip to handle – so essentially a 180mm Gyuto & 180mm Santoku in one knife. The 210mm is the most favoured size for most chefs.
All knives come with one free sharpening. Avoid using on frozen foods and on bones.
