MIYABI strives for perfection with Kaizen - Japanese for "improvement" or "change for the better." This line of knives combines the best hardening technology with the artistry of traditional Japanese craftsmanship. The resilient core of VG10 super steel is protected by a stunning 64-layer flower Damascus pattern.The CRYODUR blades feature exceptional sharpness and durability thanks to their innovative, icehardening treatment. Then, artisans hand-hone the blades with the historic Honbazuke method. This attention to detail translates into precision cutting for MIYABI Kaizen users.The blade is balanced by a refined D-shaped handle made of black linen Micarta. With a wood-like texture, the comfortable handle won't slip from your hand and acts as a moisture repellant. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.

  • VG10 super steel
  • Authentic thin Japanese blade profile
  • Hand-honed using the three-step Honbazuke process to a 9.5 to 12 degree edge
  • CRYODUR blade, ice-hardened to Rockwell 60
  • 65-layer flower Damascus design with katana edge

Great guy!
5 /5
I had narrowed my choices between two high end brands but each had different options and features, and honestly, I was overwhelmed. I posed a question on Google and Curated popped up so I filled out a bit of information. Admittedly I was snarky because I thought it would be a bot! Brad isn't a bot! LoL He's quite knowledgeable and helped me sort through the differences and found what best suited my needs. I'm very pleased with my experience with him and Curated and am looking forward to my next two purchases already chosen with his help. Thanks!|

This made shopping for cookware so much easier! Mike took into consideration my needs and made great recommendations. His finds were well though out and the explanations from Annette made it easy to follow on with questions to tailor the recommendations even further. I would definitely recommend and will probably use again in the future.

5 /5
It is especially important to me that a salesperson is not pushy…I wasn’t sure at first, but I had a great Curated experience. David clearly has cooking experience to answer my questions the way he did, and he did research (temp tolerances) when he didn’t know a detail. So helpful! This was a great shopping experience; thank you!

Excellent First Experience!
5 /5
I stumbled upon Curated through a Google search when trying to find a new blender that would handle items like smoothies and soups better than my standard $30 countertop model now that we had started drinking/eating more of them. I was matched with Mike and he was amazing! He was responsive and accommodating to my schedule. He asked relevant questions which allowed him to make some great recommendations. When I made a choice and found the same item on sale on another site he was even kind enough to price match it for me. Mike has ensured that I will be back to Curated for all of my relevant needs in the future as we buy a new home at the end of this year and beyond.
