Description
H34373203: Miyabi Birchwood SG2
Miyabi by Zwilling J.A. Henckels Japan
 
Miyabi continues to strive for perfection with the introduction of Miyabi Birchwood SG2. This next generation of Miyabi knives, made in Seki, Japan, combined the greatest hardning technology, most precious knife materials and the artistry of traditional craftsmanship.

Features and Benefits

The Potent core of SG2 super steel is protected by a 101-layer stunning flower Damascus pattern.

The Cryodur blade undergoes a four-step hardening process that maximizes the properties of the steel.
  • Hardening done in a state-of-the-art vacuum furnace
  • Rapid-quenching to room temperature in seconds
  • Cryogenic treatment at -321° F to enhance the corrosion resistance
  • Double tempering to improve toughness
The result, blades with 63 Rockwell Hardness that have outstanding cutting edge retention, corrosion resistance and toughness.

The Katana edge is hand-finished with the traditional 3-step Honbazuke method. The angle of each blade is honed by an artisan to 9.5-12 degrees per side. The acute angle in concert with the Honbazuke method yields scalpel-like sharpness.

The exceptional blade is complemented by an equally stunning Karelian (Masur) Birch handle. Karelian Birch holds a place as a prized knife handle material as well as being the only wood ever used to craft a Faberge egg.

Shame about the customer service
I bought this for my sons 21st birthday as he is a chef. I ordered on 1st June as website said 1-2 weeks for delivery. You didn't even have it in stock! I got fobbed off with emails telling my order was being processed and it took TWO MONTHS to dispatch! I will not be recommending your site! The knife, however, is brilliant and my son is overjoyed with it
