Kaizen Miyabi Santoku 7" w/ Granton Edge. This knife is an exceptional value from Henckels. The core steel is VG10 (HRC 60) and is clad in an attractive Damascus pattern. The blade undergoes a four step hardening process which improves edge retention and durability. The handle is made of black linen Micarta with a decorative pin, red spacers, and a metal end cap.
Great knife! Nice fit and finish. Good balance. The micarta handle has a nice texture for grip. Sharp as a razor out of the box,easy to steel and sharpen. Beautiful blade. VG-10 steel like a Shin classic,but I personally feel it has a better build. This has become my go to daily herb chopper. Love it! I’d give it 5 stars but I have yet to find the perfect knife. 4.5 Stars.
