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 100 layers of steel. MIYABI's innovative, ice-hardening process locks in the long-lasting sharpness of the CRYODUR blades. Beneath its beautiful exterior, the flower Damascus pattern provides added durability.The scalpel-like blade is complemented by an equally striking Karelian (Masur) Birch handle. A prized material for knife handles, Karelian Birch is also the only wood ever used in a Faberge egg. Exquisite and ergonomic, MIYABI Birchwood knives feel as good as they look.Handcrafted in Seki, Japan

Miyabi Birchwood SG2 6.5-inch Nakiri Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Nakiri This knife performs as well as it looks. The Damascus cladding and hamon edge are amazing to look at. It makes cooking and preparing things that much more fun and visually appealing. Every time I set any of my Miyabi birchwoods to the side after dicing up an onion it gives me the same feeling of appreciation. It’s art, it’s beauty, and it’s performance all in the same package. What’s not love? P.S. I oil my handles with mineral oil and then a mineral oil beeswax mixture. It protects and beautifies the handles to an even higher level than when they come out of the box. Love my Miyabis!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited for this one! I am the proud owner of several other Miyabi Birchwood knives, and purchased the Nakari as soon as it came out! The Birchwood line is made out of SG2 steel which is quite hard, and keeps the blade edge nice and sharp. When they do need sharpening, its so easy to bring the knife back to the original edge, which makes me feel like I'm always working with a brand new knife! The Birchwood handle is so stylish and looks great in my new kitchen. Nakari knives are so useful and can be used for mincing, cutting, slicing and dicing. The shape of the blade is wider than a chefs knife which makes it really easy to scoop items once cut. I can work with the Nakari without experiencing hand fatique, and find myself grabbing it when I need tons of vegetables for soups, stocks and stews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the WOW factor 101 layers of sheer bliss! This has been a great alternative to my Santoku, although I still use both. Using it mostly for veggies, it is one of the more beautiful knives I have seen or used! The birch handle is both attractive and a comfort. It also cuts through the hardest outer layers like melons and will not disappoint! Well worth the price to own this "wow" knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After using my Birchwood Chef all the time, I decided that i wanted another knife in the collection. went back and forth between the Santoku and the Nakiri for days, I am so happy with this choice, nothing wrong with the santoku ( will probably get that next) but the Nakiri cuts so beautifully! the balance and the feel of the handle have made this my new favorite knife. It looks so impressive and I'm amazed that they were able to keep such a sharp, lightweight, knife and maintain the 101 layer Damascus. You need this knife now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing knife The Miyabi Birchwood collection is one of my favorites, and I absolutely love using the Nakiri. I had never used this blade style before, but when I handled and chopped with this knife for the first time, it was amazing. It cuts so effortlessly due to the fact that it's constructed with 100 layers of SG2 steel. The handle is smooth and feels great to hold as you chop through produce. It’s a great, sharp, beautiful Japanese knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Miyabi Birchwood line is one of the most beautiful lines Zwilling makes. The blade is made from SG2 steel, one of the highest quality in the market place. There is an additional 100 layers protecting the core. This knife is one of the sharpest I have ever used. I love the shape of this nikiri blade, it is more rounded then most nikiri's so easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authentic design I am a big fan of Japanese cuisine and was looking for a great nakiri. I love this Birchwood line. The steel is super sharp and stays sharp. The layering of the blade gives it a very attractive look. I love the birchwood is a unique piece and the handle actually becomes more attractive with use as it ages. A great product overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite blade shape in superb steel This knife brings me joy. It is beautifully hand crafted and made of the one of the best steels for cutlery. The smooth birchwood handle with inset moniker are an elegant touch. But the part I really love is the nakiri shaped blade. I just sliced raw chicken with it. In an hour it will chop all my vegetables. I can use it for everything.
