Misono’s best-selling UX10 Series of knives have been praised in several famous publications, including the L.A. Times.
Using a high purity special stainless steel produced by a Swedish steel company, Misono has combined time-tested tradition techniques with new technological advances to create their ultimate line of stainless steel Chef's knives. The UX10 Series have exceptionally rust-resistant blades yet, just like high carbon steel knives, they offer extremely sharp edges and are easy to re-sharpen (HRc. 59-60). Perfect balance and grip is provided by using full tang construction, water-resistant black pakkawood (Resin impregnated wood composite) handle scales and a nickel silver bolster, which adds a stylish accent.
These rare, upgraded versions of the Misono UX10 Series knives feature unique oval dimples ground in to the blade. The oval dimples help to prevent food from sticking to the blade during cutting and also reduce friction, creating a smooth and effortless cutting experience. Misono takes extra care with the details of these flagship knives and to adjust for the blade stock removed by the oval dimples, they make these blades slightly thicker to ensure that they have the same total weight and blade balance as the standard UX10 Series knives.
These distinctive Misono UX10 Series knives are a fine choice for people who demand extra cutting performance or people looking to buy a unique looking knife.
Misono craftsmen make extra hand sharpening steps by whetstone for all of UX10 with Dimples Series knives. You can experience extreme sharpness and high cutting performance straight from the box!
