Miyabi Birchwood Paring Knives

We traveled to Japan to develop this exclusive set of knives. Authentically Japanese in design, each knife has 101 layers of steel—50 layers clad on each side of the CRYODUR-hardened SG2 microcarbide steel core—forming a delicate Damascus pattern with 63 Rockwell.

Paring knives are perfect for small precision jobs like peeling, coring and intricate cuts. Each blade in the set 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, the 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.
