German engineering meets exquisite Japanese craftsmanship in this knife line. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan by highly trained artisans using the traditional Honbazuke method, the MIYABI Evolution 8-inch chef’s knife features advanced FC61 fine carbide stainless steel - 61 hardness on the Rockwell scale – that provides unsurpassed corrosion and chip resistance. This cutting-edge steel ensures the hand-honed blades retain their impressive sharpness for a long time. Thanks to an innovative, ice-hardening process, the FRIODURx2 blades offer remarkable durability, sharpness, and cutting performance. The stunning dry-sharpened blades feature the MIYABI logo. The ergonomic, triple-riveted POM handle nestles comfortably in the hand and features a rounded spine and heel for tireless cutting.
The best sharpening tools for Japanese knives are leather strops and fine whetstones.
