The MIYABI brand’s credo--"The Beauty of Sharpness"--reflects values that are particularly highly prized in Japanese culture. The brand is synonymous with purity, grace and elegance. MIYABI knives combine beauty and exceptional sharpness. They are thus manufactured in the tradition of the ancient masters, who once produced the finest Japanese swords. Miyabi knives are authentic. They are designed by the Japanese and manufactured in ZWILLING's own factories in Japan.
Japanese chef knives are brittle and the blades can chip if not handled carefully. High Carbon steel chef knives can rust and corrode if not dried promptly and kept dry.
