Miyabi Birchwood 7 Piece Block Set

Authentically Japanese in design, each knife has 101 layers of steel—50 layers clad on each side of the CRYODUR-hardened SG2 microcarbide steel core—forming a delicate Damascus pattern with 63 Rockwell.
Each blade in the set is hand-honed using a traditional three-step honbazuke process. 
It’s sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel.

The genuine hamon edge, the visible line where flexible outer layers and incredibly hard core layer meet, is reminiscent of legendary Japanese swords in its scalpel-like sharpness and remarkable edge retention. 
A hamon edge is a sign of superior craftsmanship.

The D-shape of the natural Masur birch handle creates a comfortable grip and provides tireless cutting even with frequent use. Handle features an intricate mosaic center pin, red detailing and engraved endcap. 
Hand wash. Sharpen with Miyabi sharpening stones.

$999.00 - $1,500.00
