Additional Information

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll want to leave it out to show it off! This is one of those purchases that is as much about treating yourself to something beautiful as it is to getting a kitchen tool that makes cutting a breeze. Crafted from G2 steel which means it will be stronger and sharper than any other knife you've ever used. The Birchwood handle needs care to maintain its beauty but it's a joy to handwash and care for a this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're looking for a chef's knife a little larger than the traditional 8" but not as heavy duty as a 10", this beautiful knife is a happy medium. Take care not to expose the birchwood handle to too much water to keep it looking new. You'll be impressed with the long-lasting sharpness and beauty of this Miyabi knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Stunning This chef knife is so beautiful with it's damascus blade and birchwood handle. It makes you want to place it on a shelf to admire, but once you cut with it, you are even more blown away. It has that incredibly sharp Japanese angle that will handle any delicate task. The birchwood handle is darkening slightly from the oil in my hands which makes it even more beautiful and unique. Miyabi knives are worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This knife is a work of art This is one of the most beautiful Japanese knives I have ever used. Miyabi has out done themselves with this beauty. The balance is perfect and super comfortable to hold. The best part though, this knife has scalpel-like sharpness and it retains the sharpness for a long time. Very agile and ideal if you need to do some precise cutting. The Damascus layering is simply stunning to look at! One of my all-time favorite chef's knives.

Is the sharpening angle the same on both sides of the blade?

Asked by: Fedefabi
This knife is sharpened to 9.5-12° per side.
Answered by: ZWILLING
Date published: 2019-09-26

The handle is very clear and I'm afraid it can be stained easily.Is there a way you recommend to clean the handle effectively? Apart from the sharpening angle,are there other technical specifications that must be communicated to the knife sharpener?Thanks

Asked by: Federicof79
We recommend washing the handle with a gentle dish soap (like regular Dawn) and non-abrasive sponge or cloth. For comfort, and to help prevent staining and wear, you can condition the wood with mineral or camellia oil as needed. The knife should be sharpened to 9.5-12° per side. There are no other specifications to consider during sharpening.

I really want to buy it but I'm concerned I do not have the skills to take care of it. If I buy the Miyabi Birchwood 9" Sharpening Steel... will that be ok for maintaining it on a regular basis if I ship them in once or twice a year for sharpening? 

Asked by: LeeB
Yes, in addition to regular at-home maintenance, we recommend a professional sharpening 1-2 times a year.
