MIYABI 5000MCD – Simply Stunning

 

SANTOKU = three virtues
Symmetric blade
Blade length: 180 mm
Cutting fish, meat and vegetables.

Since time immemorial, aesthetics have played a key role in Japanese cuisine. In the kitchen Japanese chefs are just as demanding where aesthetics are concerned as they over functionality. The MIYABI 5000MCD series of knives provides professionals and ambitious hobby chefs with a set of precision tools that combine perfect functionality and ergonomics with unique design. The extremely hard core of MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is encased in 100 layers of steel of two different grades of hardness. Each handle is made of top-quality Masur birch and is unique. The structure of the wood out of which the handle has been crafted is revealed through the interplay of lines and stripes.

The Material

MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is a high-grade steel for premium uses. The specific blade structure and revolutionary hardening process endow the CRYODURR blades with exceptional hardness (approx. 63 HRC) and optimum sharpness retention.

  • Blade core of extremely hard MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel embedded in 100 layers of steel.
  • CRYODURR blade, hardened using a specially developed process (including ice-hardening at .196‹C) that guarantees extreme hardness.
  • Symmetrical blade with ultra-sharp Honbazuke honing.
  • Authentic Japanese blade profile.
  • Traditional "D"  handle of Masur birch for perfect balance, optimum control and tireless cutting.

 

Care tips

Cleaning
Do not wash your MIYABI knives in the dishwasher to avoid corrosion of the blades. Clean the knives under running water with a little detergent. Always dry knives thoroughly before storing them in a dry place. To avoid rust or discolouration, do not leave the knives wet or soiled for too long. If the knives are not used for a while, wrap them in a dry cloth or newspaper and store them in a dry place. The hygroscopic paper keeps the blades dry and the oil from the printing ink prevents corrosion.

Application
Select the correct knife for the task. That way you will always get the best cutting results and you are also easy on the blades. Never use the knives to cut crustaceans, frozen food or other hard foodstuffs. Avoid tilting the knives during cutting as this may damage the sensitive cutting edge.

Re-sharpening
Because of the extremely hard steel and the fine Honbazuke honing our MIYABI knives should only be sharpened with a professional sharpening stone.

The MIYABI sharpening tools are fine-tuned to the MIYABI knives but may be used to sharpen all grades of knives professionally.

The beauty of sharpness

Grace, elegance and sophistication feature highly in Japanese culture. They are also synonymous with the MIYABI brand by ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS. Japanese swords are widely admired for their elegance, sharpness, beauty, and technical excellence. MIYABI knives beautifully embody the spirit of the traditional Japanese sword. The authentic Japanese blade design and extraordinary sharpness of the MIYABI knives will delight lovers of the Japanese cuisine. They will appreciate their perfect balance and the comfortable handle. MIYABI knives are manufactured in the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS factory based in Seki (Japan). These knives are manufactured in the tradition of the ancient master craftsmen that once delivered the finest Japanese swords.

 

 

Made in Seki - by ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS Japan

Seki has been the centre of the Japanese sword and knife industry since the 14th century. In 2004 ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS Japan acquired one of Seki’s leading manufacturers of top quality knives.
 
Today this manufacturer combines German engineering with the finest Japanese craftsmanship. The results are Japanese knives at their best. It goes without saying that MIYABI knives are manufactured according to ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS strict quality standards. MIYABI stands for modern products that build on the knowledge that the knife makers from Seki have accumulated over centuries in producing blades that are among the sharpest in the world.

 

 
Cooperation with famous ”Iron Chefs“
 
Professionals and hobby chefs alike are beginning to appreciate the value of sharp Japanese knives for their western cooking style. MIYABI knives are among the sharpest of their kind. They are knives that will please the most discerning consumers in Japan and all over the world.
 
Chef Rokusaburo Michiba has assisted ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS in developing the MIYABI knives. He is one of the most famous Japanese chefs, an expert on the country’s cuisine and a household name through his appearance on the widely popular series “Iron Chef”. He advised ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS on all questions concerning the marriage of Japanese knife tradition and western taste.
 
In 2010 ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS joined forces in North America with another „Iron Chef“. Masaharu Morimoto also made his name in Japan in the “Iron Chef” series; in the U.S. he is one of the stars of the spinoff “Iron Chef America” and has his own restaurants.
