The Shotoh knife is light and thin with a bit of flex to it and is used for peeling, chopping and trimming. Not used in a hammer grip way meaning you don’t chop up and down like a chefs knife due to not having enough clearance for the knuckles. Mostly used for cutting away from the chopping board but is essential for any knife roll and home kitchen. The general size of a petty ranges from 95mm to 150mm but can go up to 180mm but this is considered to be in a slicing categories.

The 5000MCD Series by MIYABI showcases the exquisite craftsmanship and sharpness typical of Japanese knives. With a core made from MC63 micro carbide powder steel surrounded by 100 layers of steel, these knives achieve a Rockwell hardness rating of approximately 63, ensuring exceptional edge retention. Utilizing the Honbazuke technique, each blade is meticulously honed on both sides to achieve an ultra-sharp edge at a precise angle of 9.5° to 12°. The traditional D-shaped handle, crafted from masur birch, provides optimal balance and control, while the elegant end cap adds a final touch of sophistication to the design

Stainless steel is generally any type of steel alloy that has a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass. Compared to carbon steel knives, stainless steel Japanese knives are highly resistant to corrosion. The chromium oxide creates a protective film that prevents contact between water and iron or oxygen. An important note is that stainless steel knives are not completely stain-proof or rust-proof. If they are exposed to water for a prolonged amount of time, they will rust, particularly if the liquid has salt in it. Hardness is determined using the Rockwell scale, specifically the HRC Scale, in order to have a consistent method for evaluating the hardness of a blade. Most mid-to-higher quality Japanese steels will have HRC 58 or higher, though there are other characteristics, such as chemical composition, that also impact performance and should be taken into account
