Description

The 3.5-inch paring knife is one of the most essential kitchen knives to have in your kitchen. This ultra-sharp blade is ideal for smaller tasks like peeling vegetables, creating garnishes, and segmenting citrus.

MIYABI moves one step closer to perfection with Kaizen II – Japanese for “improvement” or "change for the better." Handcrafted in Seki, Japan, a city renowned for the highest quality cutlery production, the Kaizen II collection boasts traditional Japanese craftsmanship combined with the best hardening technology and beautiful modern design.

The core, forged from resilient FC61 super steel, is protected by a stunning 48 layers of stainless steel. And MIYABI Kaizen II knives are as beautiful as they are functional. The blades’ gorgeous flower Damascus pattern is dramatically darkened through acid dipping. The double FRIODUR® ice-hardened blade makes for improved corrosion resistance and astonishing durability. Artisans hand-hone the blades using the venerable four-step Honbazuke method. This fine attention to detail translates into a work of art that is the ultimate in precision cutting.

The blade is balanced by a substantial D-shaped handle made of black pakkawood. Effortless to hold, the classic Japanese “D”-shape handle offers a comfortable grip for stress-free cutting. This striking handle truly matches the caliber of the blade.

  • Revolutionary FC61 steel core features fine carbide distribution and is protected by a durable 48 layers of damast steel
  • Fine carbide distribution creates a razor-sharp and durable blade with a 61 Rockwell hardness
  • Double ice-hardened FRIODUR® blade offers remarkable durability and cutting edge retention
  • Blade is hand-honed using the historic Honbazuke method to an exceptionally sharp 9.5 to 12°
  • Authentic, thin Japanese blade profile
  • Ergonomic handle is made of black pakkawood and stylishly stamped with a mosaic pin. End cap features the MIYABI logo
  • Stylish, strong handle features an improved thicker and rounded bolster for increased comfort and balance
  • Handcrafted in Seki, Japan

MIYABI - FROM JAPAN’S FORGING CAPITAL TO THE WORLD

The city of Seki has been the Japanese center for forging since the 14th century – anyone who produces knives here understands their craftsmanship: Just like MIYABI, because German engineering meets Japanese craftsmanship here. Knives with perfect sharpness, precise cutting, and long durability are created in 42 days and 100 steps. Their design is reminiscent of traditional Samurai swords. Let yourself be taken to the world of Japanese knives!


Miyabi Kaizen II 3.5-inch Paring Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you liked the sharpness of the original Kaizen, but found the handle a little foreign, then it might be time to reconsider the Kaizen line. The handle and the bolster were beefed up to provide more feedback with a firm pinch grip. The 49-layers of steel are hand finished to an extremely sharp edge that holds. It has a double Damascus pattern that is stunning. This paring knife is easy in the hand. Nimble. Easy to core out a tomato, take the eyes out of a potato. Very popular knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great feel.....shap knife This is a great pairing knife. The blade is super sharp. The FC61 steel can be very thin but more chip resistant than most Japanese blades. It stays very sharp for a long time and is easy to maintain. The Damascus style patterning shows the craftsmanship that goes into Miyabi knives. I like this new updated handle over the original Kaizen line. The extra bulk in the handle makes it very comfortable to hold while working with small in hand tasks like peeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the perfect little parer! It is so incredibly sharp, you could carve a rose out of a radish; or perform a normal task like peeling an apple. The handle is round and smooth; no rivets, so it is very comfortable. It is made of micarta, which looks and feels like wood but is durable like a synthetic material. It is made from a very hard, chip resistant steel, FC61, so it will be very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my most used knives in the kitchen! I always have this knife close at hand when I am working in the kitchen. I bake so I am constantly peeling fruits largely, but some vegetables as well. It is perfect for peeling the fruits and it is super sharp so often I can get that peel off in one long piece! The traditional D-shape handle is very comfortable in my hand and make the small work easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paring knife This is a really great Japanese Paring knife. The Kaizen II has a beautiful blade and the Micarta wood handle feels really smooth in hand, and has a nice roundedness to it. With the blade having 48 layers of steel, you can really feel how much of a difference that makes when peeling fruits and veggies. A great parign knife to have in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This beauty from Miyabi Kaizen is full of great features - Damascus pattern with 48 layers of steel, super sharp edge and thin blade, lightweight, so easy to handle. Great for a wooden cutting board. Beautiful wood handle, so comfortable and nice to hold. Really a veggie knife, but we use it for so much more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paring and peeling knife! A paring knife with FC61 fine carbide steel blade core, is as sharp as scalpel and extremely hard. I love its stunning Damascus-design, preventing food from sticking to the blade. I am impress for its D-shape pakka wood handle, it feel great in the hand and I can grip this knife even for small cutting food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, if a little expensive Great balance and edge suited for more delicate work, and the size makes it ideally suited for prep tasks like peeling potatoes. Definitely a fancy way to peel potatoes but the quality is there. Makes a beautiful gift and is more art than knife, yet still useful in the kitchen.
