The 20 cm long GYUTOH from the MIYABI 5000MCD range is very impressive due to its relatively thin and yet stable blade with an authentic Japanese blade profile. The cutting edge is honed symmetrically at an angle of 19° providing the dual-edged Honbazuke blade with incredible sharpness, enabling you to accomplish even the finest work with ease. The blade consists of a Micro Carbide MC63 powder steel core embedded in 100 further layers of steel. This provides the basis for the distinctive Damask pattern which makes every knife in this range truly unique. The CRYODUR® blade is also ice-hardened at -196°C in a special process, which ensures a hardness of approx. 63 Rockwell. The D-shaped handle is a real eye-catcher while ensuring ease of use. It is made from beautiful Masur birch, keeping its style traditional. This wood is characterised by its unique pattern of changing lines and stripes. Thanks to its perfect balance, the handle ensures effortless and effective working, giving you maximum control while cutting. The GYUTOH from Miyabi is a knife of exceptional cutting strength.

    Not only is this far and away the most beautiful knife that I own, it's also hands down the sharpest, right out of the box. And that's saying something, cause I also own a MAC knife.

    As well, kudos to Nella online. I did some homework prior to pulling the trigger on this fairly expensive purchase, and no other seller came close matching their price, never mind beat it.
    Moreover, I'm thrilled to be able to support a reputable Canadian company that has been in business for over half a century. The last thing I want to do is further contribute to Jeff Bezos' obscene wealth.
