Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Miyabi Kaizen II 10-Piece Knife Block Set. This magnetic easel block comes with the Miyabi Kaizen 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 4.5-inch Utility Knife, 5.25-inch Prep Knife, 6.5-inch Nakiri Knife, 7-inch Santoku Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, 9.5-inch Bread Knife, 9-inch Sharpening Steel, and Kitchen Shears.
The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and sharp tip to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. The prep knife can be used in hand or with a cutting board for a variety of prep tasks. The Nakiri knife is ideal for slicing and dicing vegetables using push cuts. The Santoku knife slices, dices, and minces, with a thinner blade than a 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 slicing knife is ideal for carving both thick and thin slices of meat or poultry. The sharpening steel realigns knife blades between sharpenings. Use the shears to snip herbs and cut food packaging. The magnetic easel block stores cutlery safely and beautifully within easy reach.
"Kaizen" is Japanese for "improvement" or "change for the better." The Miyabi Kaizen II collection strives for perfection with attention to detail for precision cutting. The blades feature a forged FC61 super steel core with a 48-layer Damascus flower pattern. The ice-hardened FRIODUR blades feature a hand-honed edge and 61 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The black Pakkawood handles are D-shaped for a comfortable grip and includes a steel mosaic pin and end cap. Each Miyabi knife undergoes a Honbazuke four-step honing process for exceptional sharpness. Made in Japan.
