Miyabi knives stand out as real art pieces in the manufactured knife world. Several years ago, the Zwilling company (Owner of Henckels), 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!
