Description

This utility knife is a workhorse knife in the kitchen for precision work in-hand or on the cutting board. This versatile knife is ideal for cutting up fruit, mincing garlic, and thinly slicing meat or poultry.

Handcrafted in Seki, Japan, top-of-the-line MIYABI Birchwood is a work of culinary art. Both blade and handle are crafted from the most precious materials, which shape their striking appearance.

More than meets the eye, the potent core of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel is protected by a stunning 100-layer flower Damascus pattern. MIYABI’s innovative, CRYODUR® ice-hardening process locks in the blade’s long-lasting sharpness.

The scalpel-like blade is complemented by an equally striking and comfortable Karelian (Masur) Birch handle. A prized material for knife handles, Karelian Birch is also the only wood ever used in a Fabergé egg. Exquisite and ergonomic, MIYABI Birchwood knives feel as good as they look.

  • SG2 micro-carbide powder steel blade for scalpel-like sharpness
  • 101-layer flower Damascus design with katana edge is both beautiful and durable
  • Authentic thin Japanese blade profile with a 9.5° to 12° edge
  • Hand-honed using the traditional Japanese three-step Honbazuke process
  • CRYODUR® ice-hardened to Rockwell 63 for long-lasting sharpness
  • Traditional Japanese Karelian (Masur) Birch handle
  • Hand wash only
  • Handcrafted in Seki, Japan

Miyabi Birchwood SG2 5000MCD Cutlery Series

Miyabi Birchwood SG2 6-inch Utility Knife is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 57.
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 Definitely get one! Love this knife and Miyabi but my biggest complaint is all the unnecessary information printed on the left side of their blades it just detracts from the knife and almost ruins it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent super sharp knife. It’s a beautiful knife. Very sharp. Sharpening is sometimes more difficult to get right due to the hardness of the metal. The handle has a nice feel to it but can feel a bit slippery at times. Overall a great knife. I personally prefer the utility knife design. I use it more than most of the other styles. The metal feels hefty and substantial so if you prefer lighter knives, this might not be a great fit. Retail price feels a bit more than I’d want for a utility knife but the quality makes it feel a bit more justified.

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 perfect size for all your prep needs The handle and the damascus blade on the Birchwood are a beautiful thing to behold. Stunning and great quality steel that will keep a sharp edge long past the competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful prep knife I love the Birchwood line.The wooden handles are each unique. They look better the more you use them. The Damascus style blade shows true Japanese artistry and craftsmanship. The high carbon blade stays sharp for a long time and is easy to maintain. They use the traditional Honbazuke method to give it a razors edge. I like this size for all my vegetable prep. I get nice thin accurate slices and it has good balance in my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right utility carving knife! This Birchwood 6" utility is good size for slicing and or carving meat. It's scalpel-like sharpness for its CRYODUR blade, ice-hardened to Rockwell 63, this knife core is made of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel. Beneath its beautiful exterior, the flower Damascus pattern provides added durability. This exquisite, hand-hammered effect helps prevent food from sticking. This knife will slice through effortless and smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First attracted to this knife because of the sheer beauty. Gorgeous Birchwood handle coupled with a stunning 100 layer Damascus design made this knife a must have. After using for several weeks, I've become amazed at how sharp the edge is, and how long it stays sharp. Nothing like any other knife I've ever used. Great for slicing, chopping, mincing, and peeling. I use this knife for just about everything!

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.
