The Misono 440 line is constructed out of molybdenum steel and a water resistant wooden handle. The amount of chromium is increased from 13% to 16% for the 440 line in order to achieve a longer edge retention than the Misono Molybdenum line. The curve of the water-resistant wood handle is designed to fit comfortably in the user’s hand, making it popular among those who prefer thinner handles. The brand’s famously thin and sharp Japanese knives are hand finished and inspected to ensure the highest quality product.
