Miyabi Birchwood Chef's Knife

Forged in Seki, Japan, this beautiful Miyabi knife combines exceptional Japanese craftsmanship with the best German blade-hardening technology and stunning modern design. The blade is expertly layered with SG2 micro-carbide powder steel using an innovative ice-hardening process. Each side is finished with 50 layers of floral-patterned Damascus steel to protect the long-lasting sharpness of the Cryodur blade while increasing its corrosion-resistance. The scalpel-like knife edge is hand sharpened using a traditional three-step Honbazuke method, which includes a final mirror polish to create the exquisite finish. The traditional D-shaped handle is made from prized Karelian (Masur) birch – the only wood ever used in a Fabergé egg. This chef's knife is a true kitchen workhorse, designed for a range of tasks including dicing, slicing and chopping.
