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 the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and its sharp edge of your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for a long times.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.
I didn't th9nk a left-handed knife would make a difference, but yes it does! It's a good all purpose knife.
The Misono UX10 Santoku is definitely one of the best knives I've ever had. It has a great handle, a high quality finishing, it is razor sharp and very easy to sharpen. Highly recommended.
I chose this knife as my first real knife after a few years of using the Victorinox chef knife throughout college, based on good things I have heard. The initial out of box sharpness did not particularly impress me, however having used it now for a month it performs reasonably well. Hopefully, manually sharpening it will make up for that. Initially, I found the spine a bit rough on my finger for blade grip, but it seems my finger has adjusted. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and look forward to using this knife for the many years to come.
This knife was bought as a gift for my son. He is very pleased with it.
This was the first knife I bought from JCK. Delivery to NZ from Japan in 3 days !! This knife is superb. Great balance, great design. The mystery Swedish steel is outstanding. I sharpen this knife on Shapton stones, but any good quality waterstone would do. Start with 1000 grit, then up to a 8000 or 12000 stone, finish with stropping on diamond paste. The knife becomes so so so sharp !!! And really a pleasure to use. This is a superb knife for all "newbies" to Japanese kitchen knives. Well done JCK
