Misono Molybdenum Slicer (Sujihiki), 10.6-inch (270mm) - #522

2 items left

Misono slicer. Great for professional or home use. Use as you would any normal American/European-style slicer or "carving knife". Extra long. Perfect for precision carving large meats. Thin, light, super sharp, and affordable. Great knife! Note: model 521 is pictured. This model 522 is the same, only 3cm longer. Don't forget to pick up a ceramic honing rod (see below). Even the best knives need regular touch-up maintenance to keep the edge in tip-top shape!

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.
