Miyabi Morimoto Edition 8-Inch Chef Knife

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #13 in Chef's Knives


Pros: thin, sharp and well-made

Cons: pricey

I picked up the Miyabi 8" chef's (600D) as an upgrade to my Henckels when I found it on sale and was not disappointed. Feels a bit lighter and more agile in the hand compared to the Germans since it sports a thinner blade. Sharp, and stays that way. Balance to me seems to be a little bit forward compared to where the Germans are too, so it feels like it wants to cut. Some attention paid to make for comfortable pinch-grip by some rounding off of the sharp edge of the spine of the blade, part of why I say that it was very well-made. Seems to always sell at a bit of a price premium compared to the Germans and arguably it is a better knife, but I'd try to wait for a sale to make it an even better value. 


Pros: very traditional handle and sharp

Cons: expected more with a name like morimoto behind it

This is a very great knife don't get me wrong, but i heard that morimoto is backing this product, so i expected very much.  I also know that the miyabi has a very sharp angle and i hoped that this will be just as sharp.  however this knife did not go through the food as smoothly as the shun 8"  i have.  it is however a very good knife and it is very sharp.  it does hold it's edge well inspite of using it in a rather rough environment.
