Product Story
Top-of-the-line MIYABI Birchwood is a work of culinary art. Both blade and handle are crafted from the most precious materials, which shape their striking appearance. More than meets the eye, the potent core of SG2 micro-carbide powder steel is protected by 100 layers of steel. MIYABI's innovative, ice-hardening process locks in the long-lasting sharpness of the CRYODUR blades. Beneath its beautiful exterior, the flower Damascus pattern provides added durability. The scalpel-like blade is complemented by an equally striking Karelian (Masur) Birch handle. A prized material for knife handles, Karelian Birch is also the only wood ever used in a Faberge egg. Exquisite and ergonomic, MIYABI Birchwood knives feel as good as they look. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan

Fantastic Knife!!!
I’ve always wanted one of these Sanduca knives because they were so beautiful. Unfortunately, l didn’t cook; hard to justify buying a knife to cut up banana’s for your cereal. Then, I learned to cook—-bought the knife. I’m a happy cook.

What is the edge? Honed on one side like most Japanese knives or two sides?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Miyabi Birchwood, Artisan and Kaizen are all asymmetrical blade designs are best suited for the detailed cuts that are particular to Japanese cuisine. A knife with an asymmetrical blade is distinguished by the Shinogisuji line that tapers towards the cutting edge. This produces an extremely sharp blade profile, which cuts precisely, finely and smoothly.
