Miyabi - "The Beauty of Sharpness"
Miyabi knives are a realization of the joint efforts of Zwilling J.A. Henckels with Chef Rokusaburo Michiba, the first Japanese Iron Chef on the television series "Iron Chef." His philosophy, "there is no borders to ingredients," continues to bear testimony in this cooperative combination. Miyabi knives are a synthesis of the traditions and craftsmanship of Japanese sword makers with the precise engineering and manufacturing of German knives. Miyabi is characterized by traditional Japanese blade designs that possess exceptional sharpness with the sophisticated "D shape" comfort handle. Each collection of Miyabi kitchen knives is an expression of the refined beauty, finesse, and distinction that defines Japanese culture.

- From JoEl at 12/8/16 10:06 AM
- What is the difference between the Kaizen line and the Artisan line, specifically the the 8" Chef Knife
What a great line of knives to inquire about!
One of the noticable differences is that the handle is different. The Artisan line has more of the wood grain look on the handle, whereas the Kaizen line has a black handle. Also the Kaizen has the "D-shape" handle design for long-time comfortable and durable use. Both of these knives have 2 different designs The Artisan knife has a Hammered Tsuchime finish prevents sticking, and the Kaizen has a Damascus flower pattern. Also the Kaizen has also be used as trio position motions - circular, rocking, chopping, where as the Artisan does not.
Both knives are exceptional to have, but both are 2 different designed knives.
Hope this helps! Enjoy your day and Happy Holidays!
