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. Set includes 8" chef’s, 7" santoku, 9" bread, 3½" paring, kitchen shears, sharpening steel and bamboo knife block.

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.

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 katana edge.

First, tsuchime:
The three layers of SG2 steel are hammer-finished to allow food to pass across the blade without sticking.

Then, honbazuke:
The edge is sharpened with this ancient three-step process, which involves sharpening the blade twice on whetstones, then mirror polishing it on a leather wheel.

Finally, katana:
Each blade is hand-honed to an angle between 9½° and 12° per side—a process that was developed over 1000 years ago to create the ultimate sharpness for samurai swords.

Distinctive Cocobolo Pakkawood Handle
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.

GORGEOUS!
Exceptional knives--I love how sturdy they are while keeping their edge. The handles are super comfortable. I cut a lot and my hand does not get tired. Very sharp! Slices through veggies like butter. And...they are absolutely beautiful! I'm SO happy with this set!

Beautiful and Sharp
I have had my eye on this block set and finally purchased it along with two other knives....the 5" utility and the slicer. With the addition of these two knives, my set is complete. It is a beautiful set but the knives are exceptional. They are very sharp, the handles rest perfectly in your hands whereas some Japanese knives don't. I am so overwhelmingly pleased with this set. I highly recommend them. Miyabi is made in Seki Japan but they are owned by Henkle if that gives you more assurance. They are outstanding!

Good knife.
Justin S on Jan 20, 2015
Sharp cut, balance, and hand feel - preferred it to every other knife we tried.
Lauren K on Nov 29, 2014
This knife set is definitely top-level.
Tracy C on Aug 31, 2014
Really, because my son said they were really good knives and he fashions himself as a pseudo chef.

What's the best way to sharpen them, are they single edge or double edged ?
Wayne P on Mar 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are double edged. The best way to sharpen them would be by hand with a whetstone.
Will the 9 1/2" chef knife fit in a slot on the 7 piece collection with knife block?

Miyabi® Artisan SG2 Collection Chef’s Knife, 9½
Miyabi® Artisan SG2 Collection Chef’s Knife, 9½"
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it fits. I had to move the serrated bread slicer from its original slot to a slot on the left (second from the bottom) to make room for the new chef's knife. The serrated doesn't fit as well as in the original position but it's functional.
How does this compare to the Kaizen knives. What is the difference?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: SG2 blades have a hammered finish & are made of 3 layers of SG2 steel. They have a Rockwell hardness of 63 & the handles are made of cocobolo pakkawood.
Kaizen blades have a flower Damascus pattern & are made of 65 layers of VG10 steel. They have a Rockwell hardness of 60 & the handles are made of black linen micarta.
A shopper on Jan 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: SG2 blades are made from 3 layers of SG2 steel sharpened to 19-24°. The handles are made of cocobolo pakka wood.
Evolution blades are made from a single piece of FC61 steel & are sharpened to 24°. The handle is made of glass bead enhanced polymer.
Overall, the SG2 knives are made of higher quality materials, but the Evolution knives are more durable.
