Description

MIYABI moves one step closer to perfection with Kaizen II – Japanese for “improvement” or "change for the better." 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. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan, a city renowned for its highest quality cutlery production.

  • Set includes 3.5" pairing knife, 4.5" utility knife, 9.5" bread knife, 8" chef's knife, kitchen shears, Miyabi 9" steel, Miyabi bamboo block
  • 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 degrees
  • Authentic, thin Japanese blade profile
  • Handle made of black pakkawood and stylishly stamped with a mosaic pin. End cap features the Miyabi logo.
  • Ergonomic Japanese D-shaped handle design

Miyabi Kaizen II 7-pc Knife Block Set is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not what expected When I purchased this set the photos clearly showed a different block than what comes with the set. What was shown was the same magnetic display block that comes with the 10 piece set, and the description on the product did not state otherwise. While I wanted the knives I also very specifically want that display block as well, but what I received was the standard block that holds the knives which was disappointing. This looks to have been corrected on the website now so hopefully that does not happen to anyone else. The knives I received are fantastic! I am very happy with them, they are supper sharp and look great. I have used them on all kinds of stuff now and could not be happier with how they perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great approachable Japanese set I have wanted to explore Japanese cutlery for a while but I was a bit wary of some of the maintenance. This set alleviates that for me. The type of steel FC61 can get super thin like traditional Japanese steel but is much more user friendly and chip resistant. It sharpens very easily as well. The damascus style of the blade brings it to another level. The layering is exquisite. The shape of the wood handles are very comfortable. I look forward toi adding more pieces in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Knife Set For The Long Run The Miyabi Kaizen II 7-pc Knife Set does not disappoint. The knives are easy to handle and satisfyingly sharp. The set has a basic complement of knives, from a paring knife to the awesome chef's. As the block will accommodate extras, I added the handy Satoku. The kitchen shears and conditioning steel are a bonus. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! We are starting our set of “forever knives” and found this to be an incredible value!! It comes with all the knives we use the most and room to add to the set in the future. We have only used it for a few weeks, but love it so far!!! We are former Cutco owners and couldn’t be happier with the switch!! Far superior knives!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This set includes some of the most used knives in the kitchen and will become indispensable when tackling your tasks in the kitchen. I have found that the traditional D-shape handle makes all my tasks much more comfortable and the sharpness of the blades, adds to the ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This beautiful Kaizen 2 set is made from high quality FC61 steel. This helps ensure the blade is not only scalpel-like sharp, but also be durable. This set is all you need to get started, but also offers room for growth if you want to add more knives to your collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & Sharp! These knives are the perfect set for experienced home or professional cooks. Would not recommend for beginners unless you have strong knife skills and are willing to take care of them. Very sharp and well balanced with beautiful detailing on the blades and handles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kaizen II set Japanese quality and craftsmanship. The damascus blade and rounded handle create a beautiful knife. It is incredibly sharp and lightweight as you would expect from a Japanese knife. The block has all the essentials for any kitchen prep work. Great investment.

IS THE HANDLE AMBIDEXTROUS OR IS IT DESIGNED PRIMARILY FOR A RIGHT-HANDED USER?

Asked by: NJ2010
This style is comfortable for both right- and left-handed users.
