$240.00
$189.99

When slicing and mincing food items that require attention to detail or are too small for chef's knives or other forms of cutlery, use this culinary work of Japanese art. Both blade and handle are crafted from the most precious materials, which shape their striking appearance. The potent, SG2 micro-carbide powder steel is protected by an additional 100 layers of steel, and hardened by MIYABI’s innovative, ice-hardening process, which locks in the long-lasting sharpness of the blades.

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.
