Exclusively at Sur La Table. Introducing the exquisite Artisan SG2 Collection, handmade in the legendary knife capital of Seki, Ja...pan. “Artisan” reflects the rich tradition of metalworking in Japan—where since the 13th century bladesmiths have honed their craft and developed an almost mythic reputation. Industry-Leading SG2 Core The ice-hardened symmetrical blade is made from Micro Carbide powder steel SG2, which boasts a Rockwell hardness of 63 through a proprietary ice-hardening process called Criodur. The core is then surrounded with stainless steel that’s hammered to a dramatic Damascus-textured finish. Legendary Katana Edge Using traditional methods and new innovative techniques, each knife in the Miyabi Artisan SG2 collection features a hand-honed blade finished with a true katana edge. First, tsuchime: The three layers of SG2 steel are hammer-finished to allow food to pass across the blade without sticking. Then, honbazuke: The edge is sharpened with this ancient three-step process, which involves sharpening the blade twice on whetstones, then mirror polishing it on a leather wheel. Finally, katana: Each blade is hand-honed to an angle between 9½° and 12° per side—a process that was developed over 1000 years ago to create the ultimate sharpness for samurai swords. Distinctive Cocobolo Pakkawood Handle Every Miyabi Artisan SG2 handle is specially designed to fit the hand better than its competitors’. Made with unique Cocobolo Rosewood pakkawood featuring brass and red spacers, a mosaic pin, and a stainless steel end cap, the handles are both ergonomic enough for any cook and elegant enough for any kitchen. read more

The high-quality line of cutlery makes a worthwhile addition to any chef's arsenal of tools--it's used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Produced in the widest variety of specialized styles, the Classic line features both traditional European blade shapes and innovative cutting-edge designs.</p> <p>Shun Classic's amazingly sharp blade is famous for both edge retention and ease of sharpening. Each blade has a core of VG-10 "Super Steel" with a Pattern Damascus cladding of 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel--16 layers on either side. While the wood grain pattern enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.</p> <h5>NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.</h5> <h4>Detailed Features</h4> <ul> <li>Blade core consists of high-carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years. <li>Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box. This is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20-22 degrees. <li>Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain. <li>Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing. <li>D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping the knife's handle secure in the hand during use. <li>Available standard in D-shaped handle styles or by special order in reverse D-shaped handle styles. <li>Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens. <li>Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing. <li>Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer. <li>Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty. </ul> <table class="data"> <tr> <th style="width:100%" colspan="2">Specifications</th> </tr> <tr> <td style="width:20%">Blade Material:</td> <td>VG-10 hardened Japanese steel cutting core, clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers of metal.</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Bevel:</td> <td>Double-beveled</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Cutting angle:</td> <td>16 degrees per side (comprehensive angle 32 degrees).
