MIYABI continues to strive for perfection with the introduction of MIYABI Birchwood SG2. This next generation of MIYABI knives combines the greatest hardening technology, most precious knife materials and the artistry of traditional craftsmanship.
The result, blades with 63 Rockwell Hardness that have outstanding cutting edge retention, corrosion resistance and toughness. The Katana edge is hand-finished with the traditional 3-step Honbazuke method. The angle of each blade is honed by an artisan to 9.5 - 12 degrees per side. The acute angle in concert with the Honbazuke method yields scalpel-like sharpness. The exceptional blade is complemented by an equally stunning Karelian (Masur) Birch handle. Karelian Birch holds a place as a prized knife handle material as well as being the only wood ever used to craft a Fabergé egg.
