An excellent shorter petty/utility knife. Great addition to a chef's knife or santoku. I'm selling more and more Misono knives to professional chefs who are looking for a high quality Japanese knife with excellent workmanship, materials, fit and finish, and yet at an affordable price. In beautiful black and white gift box. 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.
