Description

SPECIAL VALUE Authentically Japanese in design, each knife features 101 layers of steel—50 layers clad on each side of the Cryodur-hardened SG2 microcarbide steel core—forming a delicate Damascus pattern with a Rockwell hardness of 63.

Each blade in the Birchwood collection is hand-honed using a traditional three-step honbazuke process. It’s sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel.

The genuine hamon edge—a visible line where flexible outer layers and incredibly hard core layer meet—is reminiscent of legendary Japanese swords. A hamon edge is a sign of superior craftsmanship.

The D-shape of the natural Masur birch handle creates a comfortable grip and ensures tireless cutting, even with frequent use. Handle features an intricate mosaic center pin, red detailing, and engraved endcap.

The paring knife is perfect for small, precision jobs like peeling, coring, dicing, and intricate cuts. Hand wash. Sharpen with Miyabi sharpening stones. Catalog, website and select stores.

METICULOUSLY CRAFTED
A core of SG2 microcarbide steel is clad on each side with 50 layers of stainless steel. This forged 101-layer construction results in an elegant, unique Damascus pattern with a Rockwell hardness of 63.

HARD, RAZOR-SHARP BLADES
Blades go through a special Cryodur process to ensure ultimate hardness, initial sharpness, cutting edge retention, and the best possible corrosion resistance and flexibility of blade. Sharpened to an optimal 9½° to 12° angle on both sides, these blades deliver scalpel-like precision.

HAND FINISHED
Master craftsmen hand finish knives using a classic honbazuke honing technique. Blades are sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel.

BEAUTIFUL, USER-FRIENDLY HANDLES
The D-shape of the natural Masur birch handle creates a comfortable grip and ensures tireless cutting, even with frequent use. Handle features an intricate mosaic center pin, red detailing, and engraved endcap.

GENUINE HAMON EDGE
The visible line where flexible outer layers and incredibly hard core layer meet is reminiscent of legendary Japanese swords. A hamon edge is a sign of superior craftsmanship.

IDEAL FOR EVERYDAY FOOD PREP
The paring knife is perfect for small, precision jobs like peeling, coring, dicing, and intricate cuts.

these are the best knives I have ever used in the Kitchen, I bought the block set but my roommate lost one because he used the pairing knife all the time to eat his apples. Now he is replacing that knife for me.

When I sharpen this superbly crafted knife, I will not be able to tolerate one blundered blemish on it's perfect, exquisite blade. What do I need to purchase (both equipment and instructions) to accomplish perfect restoration of the cutting edge? Failure is not an option.
A shopper on Apr 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, first you might want to try stopping it on a leather strop to regain the edge. If that doesn't work, get the right equipment and try to duplicate the angle of the primary edge--usually 12-15 degrees. Don't ruin a good knife! OR take it to someone who does it for a living (sharpening, that is) if failure is truly not an option. Stropping can restore edge if not to far gone.
