A new classic from Seki City, Japan.

Description

EXCLUSIVE Designed to exacting standards and only available at Sur La Table, Kaizen II improves upon Miyabi’s popular Kaizen collection with the addition of FC61 super steel, redesigned pakkawood handles and a host of new, chef-friendly features. Literally “change for the better” in Japanese, kaizen isn’t just a word but a way of life—one our completely reinvented collection celebrates by combining the latest technology with sleek, modern lines and centuries of knife-making artistry.

Forged from a core of FC61 steel surrounded by 48 layers of stainless steel Damascus, Miyabi Kaizen II knives perform as good as they look. Sharpened using the traditional four-step Honbazuke technique, each knife is a hand-sharpened work of art.

Features Hide

  • Japanese-style vegetable cleaver features a unique blade shape that’s great for slicing and dicing vegetables, mincing herbs and cutting fruit or cheese
  • Expert artistry and groundbreaking technology meet in each handcrafted knife
  • Core of advanced FC61 super steel features fine carbide distribution, for a Rockwell hardness of 61 and excellent edge strength and retention
  • Blade holds an incredibly sharp angle, yet remains remarkably durable—with no risk of chipping during normal use
  • Each blade is hand-honed to a blisteringly sharp 9.5 to 12 degrees (because each blade is sharpened by hand, exact angle may vary slightly)
  • 49 layers of stainless steel Damascus provide added strength and protection as well as beauty
  • Double Friodur hardening improves the microstructure of the steel for improved cutting performance, corrosion resistance and astonishing durability
  • Larger, redesigned bolster perfectly balances the blade for additional comfort while cutting
  • D-shaped pakkawood handles rest easily in the hand for a secure, comfortable grip
  • 150 skilled artisans work to produce each heirloom-quality knife using the best materials available and requiring up to 151 rigorous production steps
  • Crafted in Seki City, Japan, a city with a legendary tradition of bladesmithing dating back to the 13th century

Wonderful and beautiful knife
We've seen this knife form on cooking shows, and wanted to try it, so I gave one to my husband for Christmas. It's beautifully made, feels good in the hand for both of us (small hands and medium ones). It's sharp enough to shave with. Nice alternative for slicing.

Just perfect for chopping smaller/mid-sized items
A sharp knife is mandatory in a kitchen such as ours. This Nakiri 7” knife makes preparing fun and enjoyable especially when time is not on my side. We have several Shun Chef’s knives, but this size is just perfect for chopping smaller/mid-sized items.

Love the Miyabi knives - building my collection though I wished the sales promotion had lasted longer so I could have bought this one for $99. Also think the promo codes should include knives.

David H on Jan 26, 2018
Is a sheath available for this knife?
James C on Feb 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure but I use the box it came in, its indented around the form of the knife and lays in my top draw in the kitchen. Love this knife, I did get the Miyabi sharpening tool, the soft steel needs to have the edge honed once in a while.
