Purity, grace and elegance are highly valued in Japanese culture. These are the same virtues the new ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand MIYABI stands for.
MIYABI knives deliver the beauty of sharpness, following the concept of the famous Japanese swords. Since the 14th century Seki is the center of the Japanese sword and knife industry. In 2004 ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS acquired one of Seki’s leading manufacturers of top quality knives.
Today this manufacturer combines German engineering with the finest Japanese craftsmanship and is the producer of all knives that carry the MIYABI brand. Even the most demanding chefs and hobby cooks will appreciate the traditional Japanese knives by MIYABI which are being manufactured to the strict quality standards of ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS.
In the Japanese kitchen the cutting of food is much more than a form of art. Only very sharp knives can preserve the texture and the fine taste of the food. To fulfill these expectations all MIYABI knives get the original Japanese Honbazuke honing that only the best master craftsmen can produce. Four traditional knife types are also distinguished by their asymmetric blades whose extremely sharp profile is essential for the precise boning and filleting if, for example, fish.
