he shotoh, which means “small sword” in Japanese, is a versatile knife that is slightly larger than a paring knife. It can be used for intricate vegetable work like peeling and creating garnishes as well as for cleaning and trimming meat and fish. Top-of-the-line MIYABI Birchwood is a work of culinary art. Both the authentic, thin, Japanese profile blade and the wood handle are crafted from the most precious materials, which shape their striking appearance. More than meets the eye, the potent core of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel is protected by 100 layers of steel, for an exceptionally sharp and long-lasting edge that is highly corrosion resistant. MIYABI's innovative, ice-hardening process locks in the long-lasting sharpness of the CRYODUR blades. Beneath its beautiful exterior, the flower Damascus pattern provides added durability. Sharpening is done using the traditional, three-step Honbazuke method. The scalpel-like blade is complemented by an equally striking Karelian (Masur) Birch handle. A prized material for knife handles, Karelian Birch is also the only wood ever used in a Faberge egg. Exquisite and ergonomic, MIYABI Birchwood knives feel as good as they look. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan. Authentic, thin Japanese blade comprised of premium G2 micro-carbide powder steel Hand-honed using a traditional, three-step Honbazuke method to a 9.5 to 12° edge CRYODUR blade, ice-hardened to Rockwell 63 Blade consists of 101 layers of steel, resulting in a gorgeous floral Damascus pattern, with katana edge Ergonomic D-shape handle made from prized Japanese Karelian (Masur) Birch Rounded spine and heel and steel endcap with embossed logo Handcrafted in Seki, Japan Handwash only
