Miyabi Artisan Santoku Knife
Paying homage to ancient Samurai swords, the Miyabi Artisan Santoku Knife combines elegance and authentic Japanese craftsmanship with precision and functionality. The D-shaped wooden handle features a rounded design crafted from cocobolo rosewood pakkawood, which offers comfort and ergonomics for fatigue-free cutting. It adds a distinctive touch to the rest of a professional or home kitchen cutlery collection.
The CRYODUR ice-hardened blade has a Rockwell hardness rating of 63 to provide years of culinary use. Hand-honed on both sides, the thin Japanese blade profile has a katana edge to offer precise and razor-sharp slicing in a sleek and refined design. A traditional three-step Honbazuke process achieves a 9.5 to 12-degree angle for precision cutting. The Miyabi Artisan santoku knife has an SG2 micro-carbide powder steel core layered with a hand-hammered tsuchime finish that prevents food from sticking.
Traditional to the santoku knife aesthetic, the all-purpose Miyabi Artisan knife has a dull back spine that curves down to a sharp point for piercing, slicing, cutting and chopping tasks. Chop up a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables to prepare nutrient-rich weekday dinners. Or slice cheese, mince herbs and spices and cut and dice fruit for a quick and healthy snack in between. The blade is shorter, flatter and wider than a Western-style chef’s knife, which allows for an up-and-down chopping motion as well as the all-purpose ability for exceptional slicing and mincing.
The Miyabi Artisan santoku is part of an exceptional knife collection that features sophisticated details such as brass and red spacers, a mosaic pin and a stainless-steel end cap with an embossed Miyabi logo. With its modern functionality, innovative techniques and traditional design, it will quickly become your favorite and best santoku knife in your culinary collection.
