"Wow, Super Sharp!"
I love this knife. I just picked it up a few days ago at my local store after seeing it in the catalog. I have a drawer filled with great knives, but love to try the newest thing. This knife seemed too good to be true. It is a killer price for a Japanese blade, but the same quality of my other favorite Japanese brands. Super value!

The blade is extremely sharp and lightweight, plus it's less fussy looking than my other Japanese knives. I love that it looks German, but performs like a Japanese blade. I've already put it to the test over a long weekend of cooking and it's my new favorite for sure. I love to cook and a sharp, comfortable knife is important. I really enjoyed it so much it will be a gift this Christmas for my brother the cook!

You will love this knife

Best Knife ever
I used this knife in a Sur La Table cooking class and loved it. I got it as a Christmas present because I talked about it so much. It has great balance and is not too heavy for my hands. I like the 6 inch better than the 8 inch for cutting veggies. I don't eat meat so don't use it for that.
This is a beautiful, sturdy knife.

Cindy J on Feb 8, 2016
What does the limited lifetime warranty mean?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This was a gift to someone. I have no information on the use or properties of this knife . It was ordered for a pastry chef who likes to cook
Regarding the sharpness of the blade: Is 22 - 24 degrees the edge angle (only one side) or the included angle (both sides)?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The blade is 11" per side, or an included angle of 22". That being said, the angle can actually be a little off at 9-11" per side, with an included angle of 18-22".The hardness is 61 (HRC61) on the Rockwell scale for hardness
Honing with steel?

I'm new to nice cutlery and recently purchased the 8"" evolution. Love the knife! I've been doing some reading and it seems there are mixed feelings on honing Japanese knives with steel. What do you recommend with this knife?Additionally, your in-store employee only recommended getting the knife sharpened every 6 months or so. Is this correct
A shopper on Feb 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've never heard of steel being an issue as long as the honing steel is stronger than the knife blade, but I do know some people prefer to honing with ceramic. It's really a matter of opinion.As far as sharpening goes, once every 6 months should be plenty.A rep from Zwilling once used a really good hair analogy to explain how often you should hone and sharpen your knife. When you hone it, you're just maintaining the straightness of the blade, whereas sharpening actually removes a little bit of steel when you do it. So it's like brushing & cutting your hair. Since you brush your hair every day but you only cut it occasionally, you should hone your knife regularly but only sharpen it every so often
Can anybody tell me the exact width of the blade at it's widest point on the 8" knife blade? I have large hands and need to know exact measurements before ordering. Thanks!
Derek Z on Jan 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: the blade itself is 5 cm wide. The distance from the underside of the handle to the edge of the blade is 3.5 cm. Hope that helps
Is is good to cut meat with?
Patty T on Dec 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: YES! I use it to slice raw chicken, roasts, even turkey. It's a great all purpose knife.
What is the recommended sharpener for the Miyabi Evolution knives?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: We suggest using the Miyabi sharpener.
Can someone recommend a sheath for the 8-inch version of this knife?

I purchased Miyabi's wooden 8-inch chef's knife sheath, but it does not seem to be compatible with this knife. I'd like a nice wooden or leather sheath, if possible
A shopper on Jan 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We don't carry any other wooden or leather sheaths, but I think the Messermeister 2x8 or 2x10 would work
How thick is the blade at the spine�for the 8- and 10-inch knives?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 1/16 of an inch wide which equals 1.6 mm for both the 8 and 10"" Chef knives
Which knife sharpener for Miyabi + Global knives?

Please clarify the blade angle on the Miyabi Evolution 8"" chef; i.e., is it 11-12 degrees per side?Re: sharpening: I have the Global 7"" santoku, 5"" santoku, serrated utility and 4"" paring plus the Miyabi 6"" fusion rocking chef. Yesterday, I bought the Miyabi Evolution 8"" chef and 3.5"" paring knife in Palo Alto. I was going to buy the Minosharp knife sharpener because I was mostly Global. But now with 4 Globals, one Fusion Miyabi and 2 Evolution Miyabis, what is my best sharpening solution given the differences in blade angles? I'm not sure if I'm ready for a wet stone, but will go that route if needed. Note: I live in HI, so can't bring knives into a store for free sharpening
A shopper on Dec 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Global knives are usually 15 degrees each side (30" inclusive), and the Miyabi Fusion blades are 11 degrees each side (22" inclusive). Normally a degree or two inclusive is not a deal breaker for sharpening, but 4 degrees each side is quite a lot.I hate to say it, but the best plan of attack may be to get a separate sharpener for both if you want to go the handheld route. Otherwise the best option may be to get a whetstone with some guide rails. The guides can be adjusted so you get the correct angle for both the Global and Miyabi. Yeah, it's not as easy or fast as a handheld wheel, but these knives should not need to be sharpened as often. But when you do sharpen them using a whetstone, they will hold the edge a lot longer - 2-3 times longer! - than you could get using a handheld.Note: Don't try and get us to feel sorry for you living in Hawai'i. After this winter, I think everyone on the mainland would trade places with you. Pomaika`i ;-
I bought a Miyabi Chef's knife a few months ago at Sur la Table. It says 400FC on the back side. Also says FC61 steel. I threw the box away. This may seem like a dumb question, but is it an Evolution knife? I was thinking of picking up some more but wanted to be sure they are the same. Fantastic knife, almost freakishly sharp.
A shopper on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If it's smooth like this picture, then yes, it's a Miyabi Evolution knife. The other Miyabis have kind of bumpy blades. We really like our Miyabi Evolution knives and they are extremely sharp.
