About Miyabi 雅
Miyabi is Zwilling's answer to the superior quality of Japanese knives. Realising that it is simply impossible to catch up with Japanese knifemaking, Zwilling Group has decided to set up Zwilling Japan, and recruit local craftsmen to make Japanese knives using the tradition of the ancient masters. According to Zwilling, "Miyabi knives are authentic because MIYABI does not try to be Japanese; it really is Japanese."
Wash and dry with a soft sponge, and safely store after use. Avoid cutting into bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.
Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards and high-end composites, and quality plastics such as polyethene make acceptable cutting surfaces, and will help protect and prolong knife’s edge. AVOID glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, non-forgiving surfaces.
We recommend sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones, as we believe they yield the best results for your knives.
This knife came out of the box beautiful and extremely sharp. It is exactly as advertised and I love it!
The one thing I would note is that the handle shape is unique and maybe not for everyone. It is pretty large for a paring knife, especially wide at the tail, tapering toward the blade. The handle is also asymmetrical - the right side has an abrupt angle which I expected to feel strange, but I don't mind it because it fits into creases of my fingers.
