Aesthetics have played a key role in Japanese cuisine since time immemorial.
The look of a dish and the way it is presented on the plate are just as much a part of the pleasure as its taste and aroma. In the kitchen, Japanese chefs are just as demanding where aesthetics are concerned as they are with functionality.
The MIYABI 5000MCD series provides professionals and ambitious amateur chefs with a set of precision knives that combine perfect functionality and ergonomics with unique design.
Miyabi Birchwood SG2 knives are made from the finest materials delivering high-performance and are exquisite.
To maintain your knife blade edge, it is very important to use a honing steel on a regular basis. By using a honing steel it will lessen the amount of times you will need to sharpen your knives. A honing steel re-aligns the edge of the knife blade.
Simply place the heel of the knife blade onto the steel and pull downward with little pressure. Repeat on each side 7 to 8 times.
Tungsten is a metal that offers some of the highest tensile strength. It is an excellent choice for sharpening harder steels that are often used in Japanese cutlery, because it can maintain its granular structure. this promises an appropriate surface for sharpening.
This honing steel can be used on softer steels as well providing faster results but the possibility of over sharpening (bending over the edge) should be considered.
Each handle made of top-quality Masur birch is also unique. The structure of the wood handle is reflected through the interplay of lines and stripes. The warmth of the natural wood contrasts nicely with the steel blade. A mosaic pin finishes off the sophisticated look.
