About Misono Molybdenum
Misono’s most affordable line of knives is created with a stain resistant molybdenum steel blade. The added molybdenum and vanadium gives this line a greater rust-resistance and hardness. Misono’s popularity stems from the thin profile that allows the knife to be used and sharpened for a long period of time.
About Misono
Misono was established in 1935, and the company has been kept a small, exclusively family-owned business for decades. The company began as a kitchen tool blade maker for vegetable peelers.Today Misono is Japan’s oldest Western style knife maker, with only fifty workers producing 150,000 knives a year. While many larger companies send knives to other manufacturers to have specialists make different parts of a knife, Misono produces 100% of their knives in house with extreme attention to detail for quality assurance. Misono’s production process is very similar to
that of traditional Japanese style knives, as they are largely made by hand. Misono ensures a long lasting edge retention for professional use by using hard steel and hand finished sharpening. To guarantee that all Misono knives are of the highest quality, knives do not leave the company without passing several levels of inspections.
Purpose of Gyuto & Honesuki
The Gyuto is a versatile chef's knife. It can be used for cutting meat, fish and vegetables, making it suitable for preparing Western cuisine. Lightweight and thin, Japanese chef knives have a sharper blade and maintain their sharpness longer than most other chef knives.
