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.
Misono craftsmen make extra hand sharpening steps by whetstone for all of UX10 Series knives. You can experience extreme sharpness and high cutting performance straight from the box!
Honesuki knives were originally intended to be a specialist knife for de-boning and breaking down poultry, but many people have found this knife is also capable of filleting fish or red meat and can perform many of the tasks that Western boning knives are used for.
