Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Miyabi Kaizen 10-Piece Knife Block Set. This 12-slot block comes with the Miyabi Kaizen 3.5-inch Vegetable Knife, 4.5-inch Paring Knife, 5.5-inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife, 6- and 8-inch Chef's Knives, 9.5-inch Bread Knife, 9.5-inch Slicing Knife, 9-inch Sharpening Steel, and Kitchen Shears.
The vegetable knife has a flat edge for greater contact between the knife and the cutting board for more efficient mincing. The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The Santoku knife slices, dices, and minces, with a thinner blade than the chef's knife and indentations that create air pockets to push food away from the blade. The chef's knives are all-purpose knives 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 slicing knife is ideal for carving both thick and thin slices of meat or poultry. The honing 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, and the extra slots allow for expansion of your collection.
"Kaizen" is Japanese for "improvement" or "change for the better." The Miyabi Kaizen collection strives for perfection with attention to detail for precision cutting. The blades are made from a VG10 super steel core with a 64-layer Damascus pattern. The ice-hardened CRYODUR blades undergo a four-step hardening process. The finished blades feature a hand-honed edge and 60 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The black linen Micarta handles are D-shaped for a comfortable grip and include a steel end cap. Each Miyabi knife undergoes a Honbazuke three-step honing process for exceptional sharpness. Made in Japan.
