The Miyabi Kaizen Straight Paring Knife is an essential tool to trim, slice, and peel small vegetables and mince herbs. The flat edge means greater contact between the knife and the cutting board for more efficient mincing.
"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.
