Miyabi 4000Fc: the blade
The special blade of the kitchen knife immediately catches the eye. The way in which the contours around the cut are treated gives the knife a striking appearance. It seems that two sheets of steel come together here. This while the blade is really made of one type of steel, namely FC61. A FRIODURx2 ice-hardened, stainless steel with a hardness of 61 HRC. A strong example that can be sharpened extremely sharp as well. It won't surprise you that the blade itself is razor-sharp. From top to heel. Thanks to the traditional Japanese Honbazuke sharpening method, whereby each knife is expertly sharpened and stropped in three phases.
Miyabi 4000FC: the handle
The blade of the Miyabi 4000FC knife blends seamlessly into the octagonal handle via a half-crop. Made from dark Pakka wood, with the characteristic mosaic pin in the middle. Stylish without too much fuss. Because the crop does not extend all the way to the blade's heel you can use the entire cutting surface. Practical with cutting and sharpening.
