Details: Miyabi celebrates Japanese craftsmanship with this Miyabi Mizu SG2 Knife Set. Using traditional methods and innovative techniques, these knives merge the past and present into one exceptional knife collection. The SG2 micro-carbide powder stainless steel core is wrapped in another layer of stainless steel with a hammered ("Tsuchime") Damascus finish. The Cryodur heat treatment process results in a blade with a high Rockwell Hardness rating of 63, providing superior edge retention, corrosion resistance and blade flexibility. Miyabi artisans then perform the Honbazuke sharpening method that originated from traditional Japanese sword making. This 3-step process includes sharpening the blades twice on whetstones, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel. Used over 1000 years ago for samurai swords, this is what gives these knives their signature Miyabi razor sharpness. The meticulously crafted blade is then accompanied by a stunning, comfortable and durable D-shaped Micarta handle and stainless steel bolster. Beautiful accents adorn the handle including a decorative mosaic pin, red spacers, the Miyabi logo engraved on the handle end. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
