Ask Mike a question about this product:

This 7-piece set features all the essential knives for the household. From the all-rounder 8" chef’s knife for cutting meat, dicing onions, and mincing garlic, to the 3.5" paring knife perfect for peeling vegetables and segmenting fruit. This set is completed with a handsome bamboo block that keeps your knives within reach on your countertop.

MIYABI moves one step closer to perfection with Kaizen II – Japanese for “improvement” or "change for the better." Handcrafted in Seki, Japan, a city renowned for the highest quality cutlery production, the Kaizen II collection boasts traditional Japanese craftsmanship combined with the best hardening technology and beautiful modern design.

The core, forged from resilient FC61 super steel, is protected by a stunning 48 layers of stainless steel. And MIYABI Kaizen II knives are as beautiful as they are functional. The blades’ gorgeous flower Damascus pattern is dramatically darkened through acid dipping. The double FRIODUR® ice-hardened blade makes for improved corrosion resistance and astonishing durability. Artisans hand-hone the blades using the venerable four-step Honbazuke method. This fine attention to detail translates into a work of art that is the ultimate in precision cutting.

Key Features:

  • Revolutionary FC61 steel core features fine carbide distribution and is protected by a durable 48 layers of damast steel
  • Fine carbide distribution creates a razor-sharp and durable blade with a 61 Rockwell hardness
  • Double ice-hardened FRIODUR® blade offers remarkable durability and cutting edge retention
  • Blade is hand-honed using the historic Honbazuke method to an exceptionally sharp 9.5 to 12°
  • Authentic, thin Japanese blade profile
  • Ergonomic handle is made of black pakkawood and stylishly stamped with a mosaic pin. End cap features the MIYABI logo
  • Stylish, strong handle features an improved thicker and rounded bolster for increased comfort and balance
  • Handcrafted in Seki, Japan

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.
