Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

From description: "Forged from a core of FC61 steel surrounded by 48 layers of stainless steel Damascus, Miyabi Kaizen II knives perform as good as they look. Sharpened using the traditional four-step Honbazuke technique, each knife is a hand-sharpened work of art".

The $10 knife probably won't keep that edge as long though.

VG10 not my favorite, I've been hooked on the R2 stuff from Takamura and haven't had any desire to go back to VG10

Seems like a decent deal if you were looking at this specific knife or line

I bought the miyabi koh which has the same metal/hardness rating as the kaizen ii, it's a great knife. I originally wanted the kaizen ii because of how it looked but couldn't justify the 225$ price tag, at 99$ this is a great deal.

This is a newer model, not VG10 but FC61. I'm not familiar with that though.

Kaizen uses VG10 steel as the core, Kaizen II FC61, I don't know FC61 to comment. Handle on the II seems to balloon out a bit at the center while the original just tapers from end to end, the plunge seems more extreme on the original going from the handle to the blade and the damascus pattern seems slightly different.

FC61 is not good as VG10.
