MIYABI celebrates the merging of traditional Japanese craftsmanship and innovative techniques with Artisan. These knives merge the past and present into an exceptional tool. The potent core of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel is layered in a Tsuchime finish, the hand-hammered effect is exquisite and helps prevent food from sticking. Each knife features a hand-honed blade finished with a true katana edge, a homage to the samurai swords made in Seki centuries ago. Fabricated with special Cocobolo Rosewood Pakkawood, the handles mirror the beauty of the blade: 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. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
