Industry-Leading SG2 Core: The ice-hardened symmetrical blade is made from Micro Carbide powder steel SG2, which boasts a Rockwell hardness of 63 through a proprietary ice-hardening process called Criodur. The core is then surrounded with stainless steel that’s hammered to a dramatic Damascus-textured finish. Legendary Katana Edge : Using traditional methods and new innovative techniques, each knife in the Miyabi Artisan SG2 collection features a hand-honed blade finished with a true katana edge. First, tsuchime: The three layers of SG2 steel are hammer-finished to allow food to pass across the blade without sticking. Then, honbazuke: The edge is sharpened with this ancient three-step process, which involves sharpening the blade twice on whetstones, then mirror polishing it on a leather wheel. Finally, katana: Each blade is hand-honed to an angle between 9½° and 12° per side—a process that was developed over 1000 years ago to create the ultimate sharpness for samurai swords. Distinctive Cocobolo Pakkawood Handle: Every Miyabi Artisan SG2 handle is specially designed to fit the hand better than its competitors’. Made with unique Cocobolo Rosewood pakkawood featuring brass and red spacers, a mosaic pin, and a stainless steel end cap, the handles are both ergonomic enough for any cook and elegant enough for any kitchen.
