Miyabi knives stand out as real art pieces in the manufactured knife world. Several years ago, the Zwilling company (Owner of Henckles), realized that high performance Japanese kitchen knives were taking over the international knife market. Like any savvy company, they did the practical thing; buy themselves two Japanese knife factories. One of these produces the beauties known as Miyabi. Miyabi knives are made in Seki City, a mecca for knife producers, and a perfect location for the Miyabi factory.
The Hibana (spark, in Japanese) line is named for the sparks that fly off of the steel when knives are forged. The 49-layer damascus pattern has been hammered to represent the image of the spark in its layers. This might be their most beautiful blade yet!
The simple acrylic handle offers a durable and sanitary option for both the home cook and professional chef.
