Miyabi Birchwood SG2 7-inch Santoku Knife is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scapel like sharpness This santoku has scalpel like sharpness. It makes chopping and slicing a breeze. Many people end up preferring it over a chef knife. The birchwood handle is so unique. It is very comfortable with its traditional Asian D shape plus the birchwood material makes it very slip resistant. I love how the handle will become very personal as it absorbs oils from your hands and develops its own personality. The 100 layer damascus blade is made from a very sharp SG2 steel core that not only makes it very durable but incredibly beautiful. If you want an authentic Japanese knife, end your search with Miyabi. They are made and sold in Japan as the premium knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from heaven in your hand I absolutely love this knife. Have had the Birchwood chef for a few months and thought Id treat myself to another pretty birchwood shape. First off, the handle is georgous! I know it requires a bit more attention because it is really wood and can swell and shrink if its wet too long,But that said, its such a beautiful knife I'd take extra good care of it any way! the Santoku shape is new to me and I am now forever a fan! Chopping versus slicing with a chef, much better contact area with the cutting board and cleaner cuts of the vegetables. It is light weight but does the job as well or better than other knives. My hubby thinks the handle is a bit slight for him... Great he will stay away from my knife!

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. This santoku is the real deal. The shape of the blade is like the ones I grew up with. Good for chopping. Enjoy this knife for a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Birchwood Santoku Very sharp and balanced santoku, complements my chefs knife perfectly. Applied mineral oil and Boos board cream, which brings out color and detail of the handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful knife I love the Birchwood line. The Japanese artistry and craftsmanship is present from one end to the other. The handle is a unique piece of wood with each one being a one of a kind. The more I use the knife the more beautiful it gets. The blade is beautifully layered with high carbon steel that is sharp like a razor and is very easy to maintain. All of the marks of high quality cutlery come with this knife. I love the santoku shape for all of my chopping and vegetable prep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra care is worth it This gorgeous Birchwood handle will need a little extra care with hand washing and drying but it is oh so worth it! With an SG2 steel core that will stay razor sharp use after use you will wonder how you ever used anything else. The Santoku profile is one of the the most popular blades for all chopping jobs. 100 additional layers of steel create the damascus pattern that is handcrafted in Seki, Japan by skilled artisans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! This knife was a gift from my daughter in law. She is a professional chef so she knows how to pick out a perfect knife. Love the Santoku style which is a bit lighter than the chef's knife and also sharper. Use it everyday for just about everything in the kitchen. The beautiful damascus style blade is razor sharp, and glides through everything. I use it for cutting, chopping, mincing and paper thin slicing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Santoku Ever This knife so far has surpassed my expectations. The grip first of all is so nice and the birchwood design is so unique (literally each knife has its own marbling). The sharpness is just amazing. I’ve used this for months now and the knife is still super sharp without sharpening at all. I also recently bought a 1000 sharpening stone to sharpen it but super glad that I haven’t needed to use it yet.

I have read the handle is porous, how do you protect the wood and will it retain the color through the life time of the knife?

Asked by: ryan369
You can treat & protect the wood with certain types of oils. This will stave off warping and help with color retention, though that shouldn't be a huge concern. Our Kramer carbon steel kit includes the appropriate oil and cloth and a rust eraser for high carbon blades, here:
