Why we love it icon

It's hard to do better than authentic handmade Japanese knives, no matter what you're cutting.

MIYABI celebrates Japanese craftsmanship using traditional methods and innovative techniques. The company's handcrafted knives merge the past and present into an exceptional artisan knife collection. Using a core of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel, they are exquisite, with a hand-hammered visual effect that not only lends itself to a stylish and authentic look but also helps prevent food from sticking. Each knife features a hand-honed blade, finished with a true katana edge, paying homage to samurai swords made centuries ago in Seki, Japan. Fabricated with special Cocobolo Rosewood pakkawood, the handles mirror the beauty of the blade, and other sophisticated details include brass and red spacers, a mosaic pin and a stainless steel end cap. The attractive D-shaped handle is designed to nestle comfortably in your hand for tireless cutting.
