About the Miyabi 5000MCD 67 collection
The Miyabi 5000MCD 67 collection is the absolute top collection from the Miyabi by Zwilling range. These knives are characterized by the Cryodur blade with a core of MC66 steel. Around it 132 layers of steel were applied. This gives the knife its remarkable 'Flower Damask' look. Thanks to a special ice hardenings process at -196 degrees Celsius the knives have a hardness of up to 66 HRC. Even for Miyabi this is incredibly high.
The blade is symmetrically sharpened in a traditional Honbazuke manner. Here each knife is sharpened and stropped by hand in three stages. The extreme hardness of each knife ensures that the knife also stays sharp for a really long time.
Not only the blade looks amazing, the handle was also produced with care. The D-shaped handle is made from special black ash wood. This wood makes every knife unique because of the stunning natural pattern. In addition, it looks perfect in combination with the glossy blade. The mosaic pin in the middle of the handle is the proverbial cherry on the cake. A subtle and stunning detail which emphasizes the sublime finish on the 5000MCD 67 collection.
The Miyabi collection is produced by Zwilling Japan and is the ultimate combination of German decency and traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
