Miyabi Kaizen 9.5-inch Slicing Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
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 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 slicing knife has a long thin blade that is a little more flexible than a carving knife and they are great to use for thin slices of roast, fruits, vegetable or even great for birthday cake! This Kaizen slicing knife is fun to pull out for those special occasions.

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. The handle is nicely rounded, really feels nice with the Micarta wood handle. It has a really nice weight to it, and I can through anything with ease and smoothness, clean slices every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and sharp This knife is longer than most other slicing knives that I found, so I love that I can get through large pieces of meat, like prime rib and turkey breast with one stroke. The knife itself is beautiful with an intricately design blade and handle. I also love using this to cut fresh salmon for sushi.
