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.Peeling & Paring: This shape is primarily for peeling, paring, or cutting in the hand rather than on aboard. Used for tasks where a larger knife would be tricky or unsafe. Function – Primarily for peeling and paring vegetables in the hand. Normal lengths – 90mm to 135mm. Tip: This knife is a MUST for every kitchen and the ideal partner to a larger chef’s knife.
All knives come with one free sharpening. Avoid using on frozen foods and on bones.
