Miyabi Birchwood SG2 6-inch Utility Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly useful! 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. I usually don't use a 6-inch slicing knife, but I grabbed it one day to skin a melon. it was terrific. I'm busy finding new uses for this knife everyday. I expect to enjoy this knife for a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Versatile! This utility knife is so versatile with its 6" blade, it may become your go-to knife. Many times the chef knife is simply too big, that's where this fills in. It's small enough to cut up small fruits and vegetables but large enough to carve meat. It is incredibly sharp and holds its edge really well. I love the beauty of Birchwood with its Damascus design, but my favorite part is the handle. It is so comfortable and has a little grip from the wood. I love how it develops character over time with use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted This is an amazing size and style. Every detail is as expected from a Miyabi knife. Superior quality and attention to detail. super sharp and durable. The birchwood handle is rounded and comfortable. I use this for slicing longer vegetables and fruits such as eggplant and squash. If you want to slice an onion paper thin without shedding a tear..this is the knife for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Miyabi Birchwood utility knife is as functional as it is beautiful. The birchwood handle is sensitive to moisture so be sure when you are cleaning your knife to not expose it to water or moisture for too long. Other than that, the durable Damascus blade will stay sharp for a really long time and the overall balance of the knife ensure plenty of comfort when using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sometimes you have smaller quantities and you don't need the reach of a longer blade. Miyabi Birchwood is made from SG2 steel which, although isn't gold, it is the "gold standard" of steel because of its hardness and ability to retain a razor sharp edge. The Birchwood handle is comfortable and has a nonslip feel in your hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Japanese utility blade I love this knife. The blade is beautiful, with 100 layers of SG2 steel, it is an amazing piece of art, and it slices so smoothly, like butter. The birchwood handle feels so nice in hand, and looks perfect with the blade. This knife is perfect for slicing fish, meat, fruit. Miyabi makes wonderful and durable Japanese knives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Utility The comfortable handle and exceptionally sharp 101 layer Damascus patterned blade allow this Birchwood knife to effortless glide through everything placed on the cutting board. Being larger than a paring knife, but smaller than a chef's, this utility knife is suited for cutting items of a medium size.

what is the grind on the edge of these is it 50-50 or a more traditional one sided grind

Asked by: clizotte
These knives have a double bevel, they are sharpened to the same angle on each side. Miyabi knives are hand sharpened using a traditional technique, so this angle tends to be between 9.5 and 12 degrees per side.
