Misono is a specialty manufacturer that has continued to forge knives for professional use in the sword city of Seki which boasts 800 years of tradition and is famous for the swordsmiths Seki no Magoroku.
Just as a swordsmith strikes, forges, and kneads steel in burning flame, incorporating the soul into the blade, Misono's kitchen knives are tempered by skilled craftsmen.
Misono is a group of exceptionally talented artisans who developed a manufacturing method that combines cutting-edge technology using new manufacturing equipment with traditional techniques and is a start-to-finish manufacturer boasting advanced technology for the forging, shaping, heat treatment, grinding, polishing, and edging of metal materials with a focus on steel and stainless steel.
The UX10 series, which reaches the pinnacle of professional use, was developed by Misono, the provider of high-quality kitchen knives combining ancient traditions and new technology.
This stainless steel knife uses the purest special stainless steel made in the EU, guaranteeing no rust as while delivering the same hardness as high grade carbon steel (HRC 59-60) for an easy-to-sharpen, long lasting, and keen blade.
The UX10 series of knives prioritizes functionality and was designed with a chef's needs in mind. The fine design born out of ease of use including everything from the design of the blade to the shape of the bolster and handle is excellent.
Subzero treatment is a special process wherein the blade is cooled to -70°C after tempering, increasing hardness and toughness and further enhancing sharpness.
Pro craftsmen follow traditional techniques to edge the blade by hand with natural whetstones using rough, medium, and finishing stones.
The fresh slanted shape increases sharpness and functionality and the knife's smart and high-tech design is clearly expressed in the quality and dignity of the nickel silver bolster used for the handguard.
The handle of the UX10 uses a high-quality black hardwood handle befitting of its status as a quality item. Hard and durable yet giving, the natural materials perfectly fit your hand.
The meaning of Santoku is “Three virtue” or “Three usage” in general. This knife enables you to cut variety of food items such as meat, fish, vegetables, etc. It is suitable for your first knife or general-purpose home use.
Just placed my second order with Kaz's, because I received my Misono UX10 a few weeks ago and it is worth every penny.... I'm in love with it!!!
I kindly allowed my co-chefs to have a try and they loved it also. It is a breeze to use, lightweight and slices through proteins without difficulty.

I purchased a Misono gyuto 240mm, knife is beautiful and delivery quickly. And one lovely thing is that they help to put my name on my knife.
Excellent service from Kaz's kitchen. Thanks.

Having been used for a while, even good knives can get chipped and rusty as seen on the above video, but don't worry!
Most of minor issues can be fixed by sharpening on a #1000 whetstone. We have tutorial videos for you to learn how to use whetstone. However, it might seem a bit hard work to get it done by yourself.
Kaz's knife is offering "Minor-issue warranty" which covers small chips and rust on the knives you purchased from us. You can always contact us when you feel your knife became dull, chipped, rusty, etc. We fix those minor issues and send the sharpened knife back to you, for free of charge!
