Using traditional Samurai forging techniques since the 14th century the city of Seki is the birthplace of the Miyabi brand, taking 100 steps and 42 days to create each blade. The manufacturing techniques employed produce knives with durable and precise cutting edges which is the foundation of the Miyabi brand. The Santoku Knife. Translating to “three ways” the Santoku is an all-rounded knife that performs, as its name denotes, 3 cutting functions - slicing, dicing and mincing.

Traditionally the blade of the Santoku knife was to feature no curve as Japanese chefs typically used forward and backwards cutting strokes or a straight up and down chop which meant that the rocking motion on a cutting board could not be achieved. The blade is manufactured from twice ice-hardened FC61 steel, which is characterised by its high degree of hardness, meaning that it can withstand a great deal of strain.  The octagonal pakka wood handle gives a well balanced and comfortable grip with a wonderful mosaic pin providing a wonderfully aesthetic finish to a beautifully crafted blade.
