Miyabi pays tribute to the beauty of traditional craftsmanship with the introduction of Miyabi Koh—meaning “light” in Japanese. Classic, simple and comfortable to use in either a Western or Eastern hold, this cutlery collection is as functional as it is beautiful. The faceted pakkawood handle echoes those favored in Japan, and each one is individually weight-tested in a nine-step process to ensure perfect ergonomic design.
- Revolutionary FC61 steel pairs fine carbide distribution with an astonishing 61 Rockwell hardness
- Fine carbide distribution results in a blade that holds an incredibly sharp angle and is extremely durable, with no risk of chipping under normal use
- Friodur2 hardening improves the microstructure of the steel for improved cutting performance, corrosion resistance and durability
- Each blade is hand-honed to a blisteringly sharp angle of 9.5° to 12°. Because blades are sharpened by hand, exact angle may vary slightly
- Blades are polished to a mirror finish and have sandblasted katana edges
- Each handle is individually weight adjusted, and undergoes a rigorous nine-step finishing process to ensure perfect ergonomic design
- Comfort-oriented features such as a rounded spine, bolster and heel reduce cutting and slicing fatigue; knife is easy to hold in either an Eastern or a Western grip
