    Miyabi Japanese Knives - 6 Inch Chef's - Birchwood Collection

    The beauty, elegance, and extraordinary attributes of Miyabi Japanese knives will captivate you from the first time you hold these exceptional pieces of cutlery. The Birchwood 6 inch chef's knife is heavy, sturdy, and strong blade with a fine cutting edge. The scalpel-like sharpness is suitable for chopping herbs or scallions, cutting fruit or vegetables, slicing and dicing meats, fish, or poultry. The professional chef or enthusiastic home cook will find this Miyabi knife will perform the range of circular, chopping, and rocking motions needed for most food preparation needs. This Miyabi knife is versatile, light-weight, and perfectly balanced. The functional elegance of Miyabi knives are an investment in art, tradition, construction, design and style for the discriminating that always looks for the absolute best for their kitchens.

    The lovely 101 layer Damascus flower patterned Miyabi knives are an artist's creation of banding and mottling that is individual to each knife. This type of steel has its origins in the swords of the Middle Ages, but was created in India. Damascus steel is noted for extreme hardness, durability, resistance to shattering, and fine honing qualities. Underneath the Damascus steel of these Miyabi knives lies core of Zwilling J.A. Henckels formula SG2 alloyed stainless steel which is made with high carbon content of superior quality. Taken together, the blade materials and fabrication are the optimum choice for those that want only the best.

    The blade undergoes a unique Zwilling J.A. Henckels trademarked CRYODUR® 4 -step hardening process that maximizes the properties of the steel used for these Miyabi knives. Hardening is completed in a state-of-the-art, vacuum-sealed furnace, then rapid quenching takes place to return the blade to room temperature in seconds. A cryogenic treatment process places the blade into -321 degrees Fahrenheit conditions to increase the resistance to corrosion. Double tempering boosts overall blade toughness. Miyabi knives express Zwilling J.A. Henckels commitment to high performance German manufacturing.

    The Honbazuke method is uniquely a Japanese method of sharpening knives and swords. Each blade honed to an angle of between 9.5 and 12 degrees per side by a skilled artisan. This specific acute angle results in phenomenal blade sharpness like a surgeon's scalpel. The Japanese geometry used makes knife accuracy that prepares the finest thin sliced sushi fishes to complex vegetable carvings of birds or animals.

    Karelian (Masur) Birch is a prized wood used mostly for fine furniture, instrument making, inlaying and veneers, and now in this line of Birchwood Miyabi knives. The creamy white background is rippled with tan "flames"and darker brown burls. Found in Finland and Poland, but primarily Russia, this exquisitely decorated wood was the only choice used for knife handles prepared to craft Faberge eggs. Miyabi knives are a work of art already, and much more so with the Karelian Birchwood handles.
