EXCLUSIVE Whether preparing razor-thin slices of shallot, slicing into a flank steak or hulling strawberries, this knife, designed exclusively for Sur La Table, easily tackles a wide range of cutting tasks. It may also be the most advanced piece of technology in your kitchen. The product of a revolutionary hardening process, the exceptional steel holds a keen edge, while the ergonomic handle, precision balance, and rounded spine ensure comfort even during marathon prep sessions.

Features Hide

  • Exclusive to Sur La Table, Miyabi Evolution knives represent the next refinement in East-meets-West cutlery
  • Designed to exacting standards, Evolution melds expert artistry with ground-breaking technology
  • Revolutionary FC61 steel pairs fine carbide distribution with an astonishing 61 Rockwell hardness
  • Fine-carbide distribution results in a blade that holds an incredibly sharp angle and is extremely durable, with no risk of chipping under normal use
  • Double Friodur hardening improves the microstructure of the steel for exceptional cutting performance, corrosion resistance and rock-solid durability
  • Each forged, full-tang blade is touched by 46 artisans and hand-honed via a three-step, dry-sharpening process to a screaming-sharp 22 to 24 degrees
  • Blades are polished to a mirror finish and feature sand-blasted katana edges
  • Triple-riveted handles feature striking red spacers and are individually weight adjusted for perfect balance and a secure, comfortable grip
  • Handle undergoes a rigorous nine-step finishing process to ensure perfect ergonomic design
  • Comfort-oriented features such as a rounded spine, bolster and heel reduce cutting fatigue and make the knife easy to hold in either and Eastern or Western grip

always looking for a great paring knife

My son is setting up his house in Seattle. Every kitchen needs a good knife. Quality is sustainable and promotes the appreciation of good design and quality. Hopefully this knife will encourage him to invest in quality items on his own.

Is this single bevel Asian edge, or double bevel? Can you sharpen using a western style sharpener?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The knife is double bevel. My Sharpen has settings for Asian, Euro/American and Polishing & Serrated.

I will probably use the Euro/American when I have to. So far the knife is holding is factory edge real well.
what is the height of the blade at the heel?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's 3/4 of an inch at the heel (where the handle and blade come together). The blade is 1.25 inches at that point. I have large hands and antsy of clearance with this knife.
