MIYABI knives convey the beauty of sharpness and exemplify the traditions and craftsmanship of the famous Japanese Samurai sword makers with the excellence of German engineering. Seki, Japan has been the center of the Japanese sword industry since the 14th century. In 2004 ZWILLING Japan acquired one of Seki's top manufacturers of high quality knives. Today, the factory merges German technology with Japanese handmade craftsmanship in producing the MIYABI line. The beauty of sharpness is provided by the original hand honed "honbazuke" cutting edge, done by hand by a craftsman who is a master of the art. The Japanese truly understand the importance of sharpness in preserving the taste and texture of delicate foods. Enjoy the pleasure of cooking with MIYABI knives.
