When it comes to knives, it's all in the details; that's why our Test Kitchen Chef loves the ones made by Miyabi. Each hand-honed blade goes through a 4-step hardening process, leaving you with perfectly cut herbs, meat, and...anything you can eat, really. The signature Japanese character on the steel reminds you that these are made in Seki, Japan—aka, the samurai sword-making capital of the world.
