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 Birchwood 9-inch Sharpening Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have I recently purchased the Birchwood 8" chef's knife and added the Birchwood Sharpening Steel. This steel is tungsten which is an extremely hard metal which slightly sharpens as well as hones the blade. The Birchwood cutlery blades are made from SG2 steel, which means you really need a very hard Sharpening Steel in order to account for the hardness. This steel is perfect for Japanese steels, but can also be used for Western and German cutlery. This is now the only Sharpening Steel I use in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great steel for the Birchwood knives This is a great tool for helping maintain the edge and sharpness on your Japanese knives. Since this steel is for Miyabi Birchwood or other Miyabi knives, the Tungsten steel will really get a nice edge back on your knives keeping the sharper longer. The handle matches the Birchwood handles on the knives, a nice complimentary look in the kitchen with the knives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A match made in heaven The Birchwood blades are comprised of a superior hard steel. An appropriate sharpening steel would need to be as hard or harder than the Birchwood steel. This one meets the need. The tungsten steel is hard enough to bring back a razor edge. And in this case it also has a birchwood handle! Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hone and Sharpen Tungsten carbide is extremely hard which is required when you're maintaining the edge on most Miyabi knives.
