Miyabi Kaizen 9.5-inch Slicing Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carve up food like a Japanese sushi chef The Miyabi Kaizen slicing knife is so elegant in the hand that it is a joy to work with. The slim D-shaped handle tucks into the fingers gently. The blade is both hard and light at the same time, making it glide through delicate raw fish and sturdy red meat equally effortlessly. That's because the 64 layers of molten steel applied over the VG10 steel core hold a tight edge. One stroke and a perfect slice sits before you. Adding to the enjoyment of this phenomenal cutting tool is its beauty. The Damascus-style polishing showing the layers and the linen Micarta handle with finishing details combine to make using and owning this knife a joy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scalpel-like sharpness Slicing Knife! I've enjoyed using this 9.5" Miyabi Kaizen Slicing knife, for years. I recently used this knife and cuts effortless through a brisket corned beef. It is not by surprised that this knife is versatile, great for pile of vegetables and slicing through meats. Don't forget, this is a VG10 super steel Japanese knife, it is sharp and has 65-layer Damascus flower design. This exquisite, hand-hammered effect helps prevent food from sticking. Hand-honed blade finished with a true katana edge and a CRYODUR blade, ice-hardened to Rockwell 60. The blade is balanced by a refined D-shaped handle made of black linen Micarta.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Miyabi Kaizen 9.5 inch slicer is made in Japan and features a nice sharp angle, as well as VG10 steel which helps keep the edge nice and sharp. I did purchase a Japanese honing steel to help maintain the edge, because I was told the German honing steel I already have, is not hard enough to use on this knife. The new honing steel works well, and there has been no need to actually have the knife sharpened as of yet. This slicer is perfect for thick and super thin slices. Easily glides through meat and raw fish with very little effort. Nice comfortable handle grip is an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from With this slicer you will achieve the thinnest slice of meat possible. True to its Japanese heritage, it has a very thin blade with scalpel-like sharpness. It is made from a very hard VG10 steel which has great hardness and will result in amazing edge retention. The D shaped handle fits pefectly in your hand and is made from Micarta. This is a linen and resin mixture that has the look and feel of wood with the durability of a synthetic material. It's no surprise that Miyabi is made and sold in Japan as premium knives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great slicer knife from Miyabi I love the look of the blade and the flower Damascus pattern look of the 64 layers of the VG10 steel on this knife.
