The Miyabi Birchwood Prep Knife is versatile enough to handle a wide range of food preparation tasks. Peel and chop fruits and vegetables, slice meats and cheeses, and mince garlic and herbs. The size and shape of this prep knife make it ideal for use either with a cutting board or in hand. It is especially well-suited to chefs with smaller hands.
The Miyabi Birchwood collection features equally striking materials in both the blades and the handles, resulting in a work of culinary art that performs beautifully. The blade is made from an SG2 micro-carbide powder steel core with a 101-layer Damascus pattern. The ice-hardened CRYODUR blade undergoes a four-step hardening process. The finished blade features a hand-honed edge and 63 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The Masur birch handle is D-shaped for a comfortable grip and includes a steel end cap. Each Miyabi knife undergoes a Honbazuke three-step honing process for exceptional sharpness. Made in Japan.
