Miyabi Evolution 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted hybrid. This set of knives is suits someone who likes a little heavier handle and the smooth slicing of a Japanese blade. It really does nestle into the fingers while it glides through whatever you are cutting. The 8-inch chef's knife is the go-to knife for most professionals. Designed to handle most of your prep needs, this has a wide arc to the blade to assist in the rocking motion when cutting. With the flatter part of the blade reserved for dicing and mincing. The 6-inch chef is a good alternative if you prefer a smaller knife to work with. The 9.5-inch chef is a great size for working with pastry, meats and vegs; it is remarkably nimble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite I am fortunate to have several 8" Chef knives to choose to use and this is the one I rely on and consistantly pick up. I like that it feels super secure and familar in my hand. It has a little more weight to it then other Japanese knifes yet has a very narrow edge to give me those perfect thin slices. I recommend this knife for cooks that are wanting to try out a Japanese knife but have always used Western style knives. The transistion is easy and the results are satifying. Easy to care for, comfortable and well weighted, stays sharp through many uses and is easy to care for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size chef knife! Evolution knife is exceptionally sharp, a medium-size and versatile knife. This knife size is not daunting for me and more comfortable in my hand better. It is slightly bigger than the prep knife. It is enjoyable to cut and slice everything such as fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, butter, cheese and even bread. Evolution knife is made from revolutionary fine carbide FC61 steel, these knives offer the signature sharpness for which Japanese knives are known. Hand washing is recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Sharp I've always had German knives because I love the way they feel in my hand and how durable they are. But sometimes you need a sharper knife for fine chopping and fish, and that's were the Japanese knife comes into play. It's much thinner and has a smaller edge but in the past, that could make it easy to chip. Evolution is made from an incredible new steel, FC61, that is very durable and chip resistant. It's made and sold in Japan as a premiuim knife which tells me it's authentic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Miyabi line of knives, and this one included, are not only works of art, but they are high performace knives that are constructed to last. With super steels, FC61in the Evolution, and special ice-hardening prossess, they have more acute blade angles (read sharper) and enough thin blade profiles, they are extremely durable. Made in Japan by artisans who have had their craft handed down from genertion to genration, these are to collect and to use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This knife is made from FC61 fine carbide steel and ice-hardened twice which translates to exceptional durability, cutting edge retention, and corrosion resistance. The blade is dry sharpened creating a scalpel-like sharpness. I love the width on this blade and often turn it over to use a scraper so my prep work is uninterrupted .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really love the feel of this knife. it is exceptionally sharp in looks and cutting! it is a knife that can be used as easily in Japanese style food prep as western style. This handle works best in my house because we have leftys and rightys that help prepare in the kitchen. well worth the investment to keep everyone cooking happy! BTW this is my 3rd knife in this collection and I always come back to this comfortable grip over anything else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife I use the 8" chef knife most of the time, however, there are times when I want the longer length for larger fruits and vegetables. It's an excellent choice for carving large roasts as well. This knife is a hand made, simply beautiful knife. Sharp, durable and well balanced. the transition form blade to handle is seamless. The curve at the bolster allows for a comfortable grip. Lots of kitchen prep work made easy with this knife.

What is the hardness of the blade on the miyabi evolution knives?

Asked by: sibertig
FC61 is renamed by zwilling it is Sandvik 13C26 Swedish steel.it has a carbon mass content of .68, chromium of 13.00, manganese of .70, phosphorus of .025 and silicon of .40 A very good steel but confusing since they dont use the original names for steel on their line of knives. It is a fine carbide steel from them that can be hardened up to 62 on the rockwell scale.
