Expert German engineering meets exquisite Japanese craftsmanship. This robust 10-piece set includes the essential knives you need in the kitchen. From the paring knife for smaller scale tasks and detailed in-hand garnishes to the all-rounder chef’s knife which is the workhorse of the kitchen, these knives will set you up for food prep success, and the sharpening steel will help you keep them in top shape. The knives store elegantly on a magnetic bamboo easel block. All knives are handcrafted in Seki, Japan, a city renowned for its highest quality cutlery production. MIYABI moves one step closer to perfection with Kaizen II – Japanese for “improvement” or “change for the better.” The Kaizen II collection boasts traditional Japanese craftsmanship combined with the best hardening technology and beautiful modern design. The core, forged from resilient FC61 super steel, is protected by a stunning 48 layers of stainless steel. And Miyabi Kaizen II knives are as beautiful as they are functional. The blades’ gorgeous flower Damascus pattern is dramatically darkened through acid dipping. The double FRIODUR® ice-hardened blade makes for improved corrosion resistance and astonishing durability. Artisans hand-hone the blades using the venerable four-step Honbazuke method. This fine attention to detail translates into a work of art that is the ultimate in precision cutting. The blade is balanced by a substantial D-shaped handle made of black pakkawood. Effortless to hold, the classic Japanese “D”-shape handle offers a comfortable grip for stress-free cutting.
