MIS-542

Misono Molybdenum Hankotsu-style Japanese Boning Knife, 5.7-inch (145mm) - #542

4 produits en stock

Hankotsu style boning knife. Strong and sturdy for cutting meat away from bones (like a standard western-style "boning knife" -- not for cutting through bones). Like the honesuki style boning knife, this is a thick blade and a pretty serious piece of metal! In beautiful black and white box.

NOTE: Only for right-hand use.

Please note that Misono knives have a very polished edge. It's very sharp out of the box, but not in the way that many people are used to with European and many other Japanese knives: they have very little "bite" as the edge is polished and so not at all "toothy". So if you take the knife out of the box and try to cut a tomato or bell pepper it might glide over the surface and appear to not cut well... this is why "tomato knives" have serrated edges (the ultimate "toothy" edge!). So while they ARE sharp, you need to adjust your cutting style (think slicing more than chopping) and expectations, and of course you can easily adjust the edge as part of a full re-sharpening (do NOT use a gadget!) or as part of your daily routine... I use a Misono UX10 150mm petty knife at home pretty much daily and I love it, but I have indeed over time removed the polish from the edge for the most part so it's a bit more useful as an all-purpose knife and doesn't have the same tendency to slide over veggie skins.
