Misono chef's knife shape, for everyday all-around use. Preferred by many serious home and professional cooks. Good heft for serious cutting, but still easy to handle. Top-quality blade and construction in a classic shape -- like a good old German or French professional knife, only better. Super choice for people who want a single all-purpose knife.
Remember, these are Carbon steel, NOT stainless, so they can be fantastic performers, but the additional care required means they're not for everyone! See the main Misono page for more information about care of carbon steel knives.
For regular everyday maintenance, we suggest the fine Idahone ceramic hone. If used regularly, you can go quite a while before having to do a full re-sharpening. If you need an edge guard, this one is the closest fit.
Please consider using Tsubaki/Cammelia oil to protect the blade of your carbon steel knife.
NOTE: For RIGHT hand use only.
