    Miyabi Japanese Knives - 6 Inch Utility - 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 utility knife is a go-to, all-purpose knife for doing everything from slicing apples up for a pie to trimming a few chicken breasts to place on the grill. The scalpel-like sharpness and pointed tip of this Miyabi knife will perfectly handle preparations on hard vegetables to soft fruits with precision for cutting, chopping, and slicing to give you the final product thickness you need for your fresh or cooked dishes. The Miyabi utility knife will make you a beautiful sandwich as you use it to slice meats, cheese, tomatoes, onions, and then giving that piled high creation a diagonal cut before you are ready to sink your teeth in. This Miyabi paring 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.

    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.

    Razor sharp! Review by

    I had been eyeing this Nye for quite a while. I was waiting for it to go on sale and when I did I quickly bought it. Haven’t regretted it for a second. I love this knife so much I wouldn’t even have a problem paying full price for it. (Posted on 2/18/18)
