Miyabi Kaizen II 4.5 Inch Utility Knife
Combining traditional Japanese craftsmanship with elegant design, the Miyabi Kaizen II 4.5 inch utility knife is a versatile knife perfectly suited for demanding precision work on the cutting board. Handcrafted from incredibly resilient fine carbide steel in Seki, Japan, a city renowned for its state-of-the-art cutlery production, the Miyabi Kaizen II knife boasts a thin blade profile and an ergonomic D-shaped handle crafted from beautiful black pakkawood and stamped with mosaic pin.
Expertly hand-honed to perfection with the traditional four-step Honbazuke method, which involves sharpening it vertically, horizontally and finally using a leather stropping block to achieve incredible scalpel-like sharpness, the Miyabi Kaizen II is an excellent choice to perform precise cuts.
The corrosion-resistant double FRIODUR® ice-hardened blade featuring a FC61 steel core protected by 48 layers of Damascus steel transitions smoothly to the comfortable handle. An ergonomically rounded bolster provides a safe grip for stress-free cutting and ensures perfect balance while you’re busy chopping, slicing and dicing. Feel true artisanship at work when you prepare fresh fruit and vegetables, cut paper thin cuts of meat and fish or use the kitchen utility knife to quickly and effortlessly mince fresh garlic, shallots or herbs for all your culinary projects.
