Heads up! Promotions do not apply to this item.
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

Meet the Maker
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.View Full Profile
