Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Miyabi Black 8-Piece Knife Block Set. This knife block comes with the Miyabi Black 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 5.25-inch Prep Knife, 5.5-inch Santoku Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, 9.5-inch Bread Knife, Kitchen Shears, and Sharpening Steel.
The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The prep knife can be used in hand on with a cutting board for a variety of prep tasks. The Santoku knife slices, dices, and minces, with a thinner blade than the chef's knife. The chef's knife is an all-purpose knife that can mince herbs, dice vegetables, and slice through thick rinds and large cuts of meat. The bread knife slices through crust without compressing the loaf. The sharpening steel realigns knife blades between sharpenings. Use the shears to snip herbs and cut food packaging. The block protects knife blades while safely storing cutlery.
The Miyabi Black collection is a work of art. The blade is made from an MC66 micro-carbide powder steel core with a 132-layer flower Damascus pattern. The ice-hardened CRYODUR blade undergoes a four-step hardening process. The finished blade features a hand-honed edge and 66 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The black ash 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.
