An absolute faultless range of knives from Shizu Homono in Seki, Japan. The finish and fitup work on these knives is incredible. The D shaped handle fits beautifully in your hand even with a variety of grips. This Deba or ‘chopping knife’ is a much heavier version of the equivalent Santoku knife. Weighing in at 210grams and 2.8mm width spine and still holding a 2.0mm width only 10mm from the edge.The Santoku 165mm is half these dimensions and the weight is 165grams. Ogg Sharpening can customise this knife with its edge and make it a heavier Santoku or adjust and use the thickness and make a more robust chopper. This is a brilliant and versatile knife and is a popular choice, but if used as a cleaver or an axe you will bring harm to your new addition. The 33 layers and the Aus 8 core hovering around the 60 Rockwell hardness, gives the Miyako range of knives a highly durable edge with the beautility to match.
