    1. BIRCH HANDLE

    Each handle made of top-quality Masur birch is also unique. The structure of the wood handle is reflected through the interplay of lines and stripes. The warmth of the natural wood contrasts nicely with the steel blade. A mosaic pin finishes off the sophisticated look.

    2. PREMIUM STEEL

    The blade core made of MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is surrounded by 100 layers of two different types of steel with different levels of hardness. MicroCarbide MC63 powder steel is a high-grade steel for the highest demands.

    MIYABI knives embody the beauty of sharpness and follow in the tradition of the famous Japanese swords.

    3. EXTREMELY HARD BLADE

    The CRYODUR® blade is hardened using a specially developed ice-hardening process at -196°C that guarantees extreme hardness of 63 Rockwell and a lasting sharp blade.

    4. D-SHAPED HANDLE

    The traditional Japanese ‘D-shaped’ handle ensures all handle styles are ergonomic and enables you to work without tiring. The ‘D-shaped’ handle is rounded off at its end with a decorative end cap with a logo.

    5. SLEEK DAMASK DESIGN

    A special blade treatment alters the surface structure of each layer, giving each blade its individual floral damask pattern.

    6. HONBAZUKE HONING

    This traditional Japanese Honbazuke honing gives every blade its incomparable sharpness. The 19° symmetrical blade is the result of v-edge honing.

    Care Instructions:

    • Do not wash in the dishwasher, as this may cause corrosion of the blades
    • To clean, run under hot water with a small amount of detergent and dry thoroughly
    • Store in a dry, moisture-free place to avoid rusting or discolouration
    • If the knives are not used for an extended period of time, wrap them in a dry cloth or newspaper and store them in a dry place; the hygroscopic paper will keep the blades dry and the oil from the printing ink prevent corrosion
    • Select the correct knife for the task to ensure you will get the best cutting results and you are also easy on the blades
    • Miyabi knives should only be sharpened with a professional sharpening stone due to the extremely hard steel and the fine Honbazuke honing of the knives
    • To keep the handles on your Miyabi knives in pristine condition, we recommend using camellia oil. It is also good protection for the blade but must be removed from the blade before cooking. Do not use wax, use at your own risk.

    Sharpening

    For basic edge maintenance, we recommend using a #400 or less grit whetstone. 
    Then #1000-3000 for fine sharpening.
