Expertly mince garlic, slice cucumber, and dice onions with this Asian all-rounder.The MIYABI Black 5000MCD series is a true work of art. This series boasts blades of ultra-premium steel for unsurpassed sharpness. Exquisite Japanese craftsmanship merges with expert German engineering for the ultimate kitchen knives.

This results in an exceptionally sharp and long-lasting edge that is highly corrosion resistant.

Sharpening is done using the traditional, three-step Honbazuke method.The handle of the Miyabi Black series is made from the prized Bigleaf maple and dyed a black ash color. The grain and color of the black ash contrasts beautifully with the Damascus pattern of the blade. The handle is crafted in a traditional “D” shape, with a rounded spine and heel, providing optimal ergonomics for fatigue-free cutting. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
