Misono 440 Series No.841 Honesuki 145mm (5.7inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

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.

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.

This knife features full tang construction, water-resistant black pakkawood (Resin impregnated wood composite) handle scales and stainless steel bolsters for extra durability and improved blade balance.

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.

Generally, Japanese kitchen knives are designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. Misono produces 100% left handed version with suitable blade grind angle and edge geometry from the beginning process.

We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for a long time.



This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for a long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in a dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Misono 440 Left-Handed Honesuki Review

    Overall experience is that the knife has a good balance. Thought it would have been a bit sharper from the factory. Iwahara san, thank you for asking for my review, but the benefit of buying from your company is actually your support staff in Washington. I am embarrassed that I forgot her name, but when I had many tough questions about honesuki vs garasuki, different metals, different angles, she is so knowledgeable that, in fact, that is what made the sale. Her willingness to contact you, your willingness to answer even more difficult questions regarding other manufacturers and models of the left-handed honesuki made me certain that I bought from the correct company. For whomever reads this, please realize that while you can buy the right-handed knives for less on Amazon, you will not feel more confident in your purchase than if you spent time speaking with Iwahara san's Washington support staff who speaks excellent English and is so knowledgeable. mike

    Nice beautiful blade

    Very pleased with the knife. Very sharp deboning knife. Very well balanced. I was surprised by its wait. It is a little on the heavy size for its size but that dose not deter its flexibility or dexterity. I was also surprised that it was single beveled but it makes is nice to remove skin and tendons. After some practice and use I have become very comfortable with this knife. Very pleased. Good high quality.
