Misono UX10 Santoku, 7.1-inch (180mm) - #781

10 items left

A truly excellent santoku. It is a superior tool in nearly every way, from materials to fit and finish to edge finish and sharpness. I also like the fact that it's 18cm (one cm more than most santokus).

The thin blade makes for effortless cutting. It's also shorter than traditional French or German-style knives for easier and lighter handling, and the wider blade helps for convenient scooping. Makes a perfect every-day home knife. Good choice for people who want a single all-purpose knife. In beautiful silver and blue box.

Approx. weight: 163g

Don't forget to pick up fine Idahone a ceramic honing rod (see below) for everyday maintenance. Even the best knives need regular touch-up maintenance to keep the edge in tip-top shape!

These knife blades are sharpened in a unique style: the right side is sharpened more than the left. It's not like Japanese sushi knives which are about 99% on the right, but it's still somewhat evident (compared to European knives which are usually 50/50 symmetrical): Misono states that the ratio is 70% right side to 30% left side: the angle on the right side is smaller than the short/steep angle on the left (you can see it just by looking at the edge, so it's not to difficult to figure out when honing or resharpening). The angles are about 10-12 degrees right, 20 degrees left. This results in superior cutting and slicing action, but please note that this means that these knives are meant for RIGHT-HAND USE ONLY.

Excellent - highly recommended

This is truly an excellent all around kitchen knife. The fit and finish was fantastic. It was razor sharp out of the box. The price was good for such a high quality knife and the delivery time was short. I would highly recommend this product.
