Miyabi Kaizen (Japanese for "improvement" or "change for the better") knives combine the great hardening technology perfected by German cutlers and traditional craftsmanship the Japanese knife makers are known for. A Miyabi Kaizen knife features 32 layers clad on each side of a VG-10 "super steel" core, creating a beautiful Damascus flower pattern. Each blade is hand-honed using a traditional three-step honbazuke process, which are then Cryodur ice-hardened for enhanced hardness and flexibility. The handles are black Micarta, which are accented with a mosaic pin, red spacers, and metal end cap. Not to be confused with Miyabi Kaizen II, which is an inferior steel type that does not meet Knife Merchant quality standards.
