Birchwood 5.5” Prep Knife

Miyabi Birchwood 5.5” Prep Knife

$229.95

Product description

Perfect for a wide range of kitchen tasks from slicing a tomato to cutting kitchen twine, this indispensable prep knife packs incredible versatility into a small, easy-to-handle package.

Authentically Japanese in design, each Miyabi Birchwood knife features 101 layers of steel—50 layers clad on each side of the Cryodur-hardened SG2 microcarbide steel core—forming a delicate Damascus pattern with a Rockwell hardness of 63.

Each blade in the Birchwood collection is hand-honed using a traditional three-step honbazuke process. It’s sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel.

The genuine hamon edge—a visible line where flexible outer layers and incredibly hard core layer meet—is reminiscent of legendary Japanese swords. A hamon edge is a sign of superior craftsmanship.

The D-shape of the natural Masur birch handle creates a comfortable grip and ensures tireless cutting, even with frequent use. Handle features an intricate mosaic center pin, red detailing and engraved endcap.
