Description

EXCLUSIVE Exclusively at Sur La Table. Introducing the exquisite Artisan SG2, 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.

This Chef' Knife is the sharpest knife I have ever used. I was so impressed with it I bought the entire line of Miyabi Artisan SG2 knives from the 3 1/2 Paring Knife to the 9 1/2 Chef's Knife, for a total of 11 knives. I gifted all my Wusthoff and Henkell knives to my little sister.

Why does this knife get a 4 out of 5 rating when there aren't any reviews?
Anthony S on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Typically this means that a review was submitted, but it was flagged as inappropriate so it had to be removed. The purchasers' rating of the knife is still valid, but their review was removed.
Will the 9 1/2" chef knife fit in a slot on the 7 piece collection with knife block?

Miyabi Artisan SG2 Collection 7-Piece Knife Block Set
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.
IS this a single sided blade or double. I want to sharpen my knife and wa
nted to know what method I should be using?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Double.
