The Miyabi Kaizen 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 collection strives for perfection with attention to detail for precision cutting. The blade is made from a VG10 super steel core with a 64-layer Damascus pattern. The ice-hardened CRYODUR blade undergoes a four-step hardening process. The finished blade features a hand-honed edge and 60 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The black linen Micarta 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.
