The Miyabi Kaizen II 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.
"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 blade features a forged FC61 super steel core with a 48-layer Damascus flower pattern. The ice-hardened FRIODUR blade features a hand-honed edge and 61 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The black Pakkawood handle is 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.
