The Japanese are master knife-makers, thanks to centuries of experience crafting samurai swords and kitchen knives in Seki, the knife capital of Japan. Japanese knives differ from German knives in the shape of the blade, which is designed to be extremely sharp for precision cuts. Seven centuries of tradition, craftsmanship and performance go into each Miyabi knife that is carefully produced to blend these classic traits of samurai swords with elegant contemporary designs. Each Miyabi knife is made from premium steel, and the knife-making process takes at least 42 days and 100 steps to complete. We love Miyabi knives for their extreme sharpness, easy handling and beautiful appearance. These knives are more than just tools, they are handcrafted pieces of art that, when properly cared for, will last you a lifetime.
Miyabi’s Birchwood 8 inch chef’s knife is made with a super strong steel core that is elegantly finished with 101 layers of Damascus steel forming an elegant floral pattern. The hamon edge of the blade - a line where flexible outer layers and incredibly hard core layer meet- is a sign of superior traditional craftsmanship. This blade is then hand-honed using a traditional sharpening process. What truly sets this knife apart is the white Masur birch handle, adorned with a mosaic pin and red spacer accents. This knife is a true representation of the quality, durability and attention to intricate detail that Miyabe puts into each of their products.
