A favorite of ramen chef and restaurateur Ivan Orkin, Miyabi Birchwood knives are as pretty as they are powerful. They’re manufactured in Japan, where the blade’s edge is hand-honed and undergoes a 4-step hardening process—ensuring they stay super-sharp through all of your slicing, mincing, and chopping. We’re mesmerized by the blade’s stunning, textured pattern and the easy-to-grip birchwood handles feel smooth and sure in our hands.

The collection includes a 9" bread knife, an 8" chef’s knife, a 7" santoku knife, a 3.5" paring knife, and a 9" sharpening steel. Purchase them separately, or buy the entire collection, which includes all 5 knives, a pair of stainless steel kitchen shears, and a bamboo knife block.

"When I used the Miyabi birchwood chef’s knife I got pristine little slivers of fresh herbs. With a duller knife, if you’re trying to finely chop, you get dull, mashed, or bruised leaves.” Josh Cohen, Food52 Test Kitchen Manager
