General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.

About Misono UX10
Misono UX10 is the top of the line within the Misono collection. The blade is made out of high quality Swedish stain resistant steel that provides the user with the longest lasting edge retention within the Misono brand. A distinguishing feature of the UX10 knife is the riveted nickel silver bolster, which enhances construction durability as well as balances the weight of the blade and handle.
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 Sujihiki
The sujihiki is intended for slicing boneless protein. The short height of the blade creates less friction when slicing and the blade draws through fish and meat effortlessly. The sujihiki is often seen as the Western style equivalent of the traditional yanagi knife.
