THE JAPANESE MARBLE SCORE SCALE

THE JAPANESE MARBLE SCORE SCALE

Japanese Wagyu Kobe Marbling Grade Chart

In the Japanese system, the BMS scale goes from 3 to 12, with 3 being the basic minimum of marbling a steak should have, and 12 being a steak that is almost white with marbling (because BMS scores of 1 and 2 show almost no marbling, they’re not even considered).

More marbling means a tenderer, creamier texture, and is what Wagyu and Kobe beef connoisseurs highly prize, so the higher the BMS score, the more expensive the beef is.
