Miyabi Kaizen Prep Knife

The Miyabi Kaizen 5.25 in Prep Knife is longer in the heel than your traditional utility knife, which provides excellent knuckle clearance. This lightweight knife can be used for shallots and garlic, or to cut the membrane out of bell peppers.


Kaizen - Japanese for "improvement" or "change for the better." This line of knives combines the best hardening technology with the artistry of traditional Japanese craftsmanship. The resilient core of VG10 super steel is protected by a stunning 64-layer flower Damascus pattern.The Crydour blades feature exceptional sharpness and durability thanks to their innovative, ice-hardening treatment. Then, artisans hand-hone the blades with the historic Honbazuke method. This attention to detail translates into precision cutting for Miyabi Kaizen users. The blade is balanced by a refined D-shaped handle made of black linen Micarta. With a wood-like texture, the comfortable handle won't slip from your hand and acts as a moisture repellant. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
