Misono produces the 440 Series to meet the demanding requirement of culinary professionals, who need knives that have passed rigorous quality control standards, have excellent rust-resistance and cutting performance, and are also quick and easy to re-sharpen.
For these knives Misono uses “High 16 Chromium and Molybdenum Stainless Steel" (HRc. 58-59), which offers superior durability, rust resistance and ease of sharpening than standard Molybdenum stainless steels.
The knives feature full tang construction, water-resistant black pakkawood (Resin impregnated wood composite) handle scales and stainless steel bolsters for extra durability and improved blade balance.
When talking to professional Chefs, they often tell me that their favorite knives are from the Misono 440 Series, even though they have been working as a professional Chef for a long time and have tried many different types of knives. This is due to the excellent overall performance of the Misono 440 Series… The choice of real professionals!
To meet a wide variety of you cutting needs, a comprehensive range of different knife types and sizes is available.
