Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream knife! My boyfriend who is a passionate home cook and I took a knife skills class years ago in Calgary canada. I remember trying out dozens of different knives with different styles of blades, handles, weights etc. The winner was this Miyabi Birchwood SG2 8-inch Chef's Knife. Wasn't able to pick up at the time unfortunately but never forgotten. Years later our friends gave this to us as a Christmas gift and we couldn't be happier. Beautiful to look at and hold!! Nice comfortable weight and the sharpest blade ever! Will be our forever knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knife I’ve ever used Unbelievable craftsmanship and attention to detail makes this knife a joy to use everyday. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant when I saw the price, but having used this knife for over a year now I can confidently say this is by FAR the best knife I have ever used in my over 20 years of culinary experience. Easy to maintain its out of the box razor blade sharpness with a few passes on a ceramic honing it’s like brand new again. Great for any situation in the kitchen and makes any prep work a breeze with its balance and sharpness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Miles Ahead I tried a Kramer and a few other knives and this one blows them all away. After owning this knife for a little while. I picked up a Shun Fuji which is supposedly their best “SG2” knife and it’s not even close. This one is miles ahead. The handle feels elegant and the shape is perfect! I use my left hand to cut and this feels perfect in my hand! The top of the blade feels smooth...I can use this knife for hours! When I want to finely chop my vegetables and give them that artisan cut I choose this knife. The Miyabi Birchwood allows me to chiffonade lettuce with unmatched precision. I can dice and brunoise onions and other vegetables and they look gorgeous! I make Pico de Gallo look like a work of art with this knife. The blades holds its edge amazingly well it’s super sharp absolutely. It’s a work of art that feels natural in the hand. I picked up a Shun Fuji a week ago and it felt really awkward and the handle felt fake compared to this. This is definitely my go to when I need a precision knife that can make precision cuts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd give 6 stars if I could I fell in love with this Miyabi line the first time I picked one up. Miyabi Birchwood is a beautifully hand-crafted and made of the one of the best steels for kitchen knives. The smooth birchwood handle fits my hand perfectly; and the inset emblem is an elegant touch. But the part I really love is the blade. The exquisite flower patterned blades belie their hardness, their ability to keep an edge, their gleam. What a joy. The chef’s knives are flatter – great for chopping; especially for someone who grew up with a nakiri as my training knife. Enjoy these knives for a lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife! Handle might be high maintenance This knife is razor sharp and beautiful. The attention to detail is meticulous. The handle was very comfortable and I appreciated how it is made of real wood. However, I wish it came preseasoned/pretreated to keep out moisture for the initial uses, even if it requires continued upkeep later on. The handle easily absorbs moisture, even if you quickly wipe it dry. So although it is very beautiful wood, even one drop of water will get rid of the original smoothness and sheen of the wood. You have to be really careful to keep it dry and not stain it with whatever you’re cutting.

Is the sharpening angle the same on both sides of the blade?

Asked by: Fedefabi
This knife is sharpened to 9.5-12° per side.
Answered by: ZWILLING
Date published: 2019-09-26

The handle is very clear and I'm afraid it can be stained easily.Is there a way you recommend to clean the handle effectively? Apart from the sharpening angle,are there other technical specifications that must be communicated to the knife sharpener?Thanks

Asked by: Federicof79
We recommend washing the handle with a gentle dish soap (like regular Dawn) and non-abrasive sponge or cloth. For comfort, and to help prevent staining and wear, you can condition the wood with mineral or camellia oil as needed. The knife should be sharpened to 9.5-12° per side. There are no other specifications to consider during sharpening.

Hi, do Miyabi knives have full tangs running down the length of the handle?

No, not all Miyabi knives are full tang. They are usually between 0.33 to 0.5 tang.

I really want to buy it but I'm concerned I do not have the skills to take care of it. If I buy the Miyabi Birchwood 9" Sharpening Steel... will that be ok for maintaining it on a regular basis if I ship them in once or twice a year for sharpening? 

Asked by: LeeB
Yes, in addition to regular at-home maintenance, we recommend a professional sharpening 1-2 times a year.

Is this a Damascus print or is it authentic pressed steel?

Asked by: Ev1488
The Damascus design is made of a 101-layer steel. It is not a print.
