Top-of-the-line MIYABI Birchwood is a work of culinary art handcrafted in Seki, Japan. This 9-inch serrated bread knife will cut through bread, tomatoes, or anything else that’s tough on the outside but soft on the inside. Effortlessly slice through a crusty loaf of sourdough and make neat cubes of ciabatta with this long, serrated blade.

More than meets the eye, the potent core of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel is protected by 100 layers of steel. MIYABI’s innovative, CRYODUR ice-hardening process locks in the blade’s long-lasting sharpness. Beneath its beautiful exterior, the flower Damascus pattern provides exceptional durability.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this amazing Bread knife. Have had the Birchwood chef for a few months and thought I'd treat myself to another pretty birchwood shape. First off, the handle is gorgeous! 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 longer bread knife blade is new to me and I am now forever a fan! It is lightweight 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 Beautiful Bread Knife A good bread knife is a game changer! It slices through a fresh loaf of bread with the greatest of ease, not tearing or smashing. Birchwood does this while being exceptionally beautiful too! 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 Elegant bread, daily. Give me our daily bread and I'll slice it so easily. Crusty or soft, no drag. Clean smooth slices. I fell in love with the 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Versatile knife for all flour-based constructions, from bread to cake. It is so sharp, it will slice through strawberries sitting on whipped cream without submerging them in it. And through layers of cake without squeezing out the filling. I’ve been using it daily and there is no sign of reduced sharpness. Truly an excellent product. The birch wood develops more friction over time, furthering the grip. Its balance and provenance are evident from the first touch. Life should be full of things like these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just recently received this knife as a gift from a relative and let me tell you, it’s sharp sharp. I’m not a knife aficionado or anything but if it makes slicing through sourdough easier than blinking then I think it will solve most of your bread problems. This knife is also incredibly comfortable to hold and the weight is perfect. You can place the knife on top of whatever you’re trying to cut and it will glide through it with minimum effort or force on your end. Knife is a 10/10 without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look I purchased this knife because I knew it would look great on my table with all the crusty breads I serve. Come to love it for so many other uses. The SG2 steel and the serrations are great for cutting melons, pineapples, onions and tomatoes. Cutting angel food cakes and sponge cake with this knife prevents crushing. I'm really surprised at all the things I am able to do with this knife and find it to be one of the most useful knives I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from slicing perfection This gorgeous serrated knife makes quick work of bread, tomatoes, melons......basically anything with a harder outside and softer interior. The Birchwood handle is unique with its own patterns. The Damascus style blade gives 101 layers of high carbon steel that is super sharp and stays that way. The Japanese craftsmanship is shown in every detail all the way down to the traditional Katana style watermarking by the blades edge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic bread knife I love this knife. The blade is beautiful, with 100 layers of steel, it is an amazing piece of art, and it slices so smoothly without tearing bread, fruits, and meats. The birchwood handle feels so nice in hand, and looks perfect with the blade. Miyabi makes wonder and durable Japanese knives, definitely one of the best bread knives on the market.
