Miyabi Koh Prep Knife

The Miyabi Koh 5.5 inch Prep Knife or Shotoh(Japan) is an extremely versatile knife. Wide at the heel with a sloping camber, this knife offers good knuckle clearance and facilitates a comfortable rocking motion when cutting on the board. Prominent tip can be used for decorative carving, peeling, trimming and decorative cutting. The 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.



  • Handcrafted by artisans in Seki, Japan, MIYABI Koh knives are born from time-honored Japanese tradition, expert German engineering, and state-of-the-art steel. Advanced FC61 fine carbide stainless steel provides unsurpassed corrosion and chip resistance. This cutting-edge steel ensures the hand-honed blades retain their impressive sharpness.

  • Thanks to an innovative, ice-hardening process, the FRIODURx2 blades offer remarkable durability, sharpness, and cutting performance. Stylishly stamped with a silver mosaic pin, the exquisite octagon-shaped handle feels as good as it looks.

  • Experience ergonomic perfection with each slice—the Pakkawood handle supports both Western chopping and Asian rocking cuts. Each knife features a hand-honed blade finished with a true katana edge, a homage to the samurai swords made in Seki centuries ago.

  • Octagonal pakkawood handle can be comfortably held by right or left handed users.
