Description

EXCLUSIVE Exclusively at Sur La Table. Introducing the exquisite Artisan SG2 Collection, handmade in the legendary knife capital of Seki, Japan. “Artisan” reflects the rich tradition of metalworking in Japan—where since the 13th century bladesmiths have honed their craft and developed an almost mythic reputation.

The kitchen workhorse, the chef’s knife is the knife you’ll probably use most often. Ideal for chopping, slicing, dicing, and mincing just about any ingredient, it’s perfectly balanced and designed to stay scalpel-sharp.

Industry-Leading SG2 Core
The ice-hardened symmetrical blade is made from Micro Carbide powder steel SG2, which boasts a Rockwell hardness of 63 through a proprietary ice-hardening process called Criodur. The core is then surrounded with stainless steel that’s hammered to a dramatic Damascus-textured finish.

The Samurai Tradition
Today, Miyabi applies the ancient techniques of traditional Japanese samurai swordmaking to create the highest-quality cutlery available on the market. Pick up any of these knives and you’ll see that the unmatched sharpness and impeccable craftsmanship of the katana lives on.

Legendary Katana Edge
Using traditional methods and new innovative techniques, each knife in the Miyabi Artisan SG2 collection features a hand-honed blade finished with a true katana edge.

Distinctive Cocobolo Pakkawood Handle
Every Miyabi Artisan SG2 handle is specially designed to fit the hand better than its competitors’. Made with unique Cocobolo Rosewood pakkawood featuring brass and red spacers, a mosaic pin, and a stainless steel end cap, the handles are both ergonomic enough for any cook and elegant enough for any kitchen.

Seriously Sharp, Beautifully Crafted, Easy to Hold
This is a beautifully crafted knife, the handle is comfortable. The blade is razor sharp, it is not good for anyone that is careless with a knife - it actually cut my drying towel when I was carefully drying it!!! I do love it for chopping veggies etc, it is the perfect size for my small hands. Seriously sharp, so be forewarned...

Absolutely my favorite GO TO knife. I wash it immediately and dry the wood handle - it is not made for anyone that leaves knives in sink which really is a no-no. The edge is sharp, the handle is comfortable...just a really great knife.
