This Misono Chef Knife (also called a Gyuto) measures 270mm or 10.5" on the blade. Misono Knives. MISONO, located in Seki City Japan is famous for making high quality kitchen knives. We are offering their top of the line Misono UX 10 series knives for sale which feature their exclusive Sweden stainless steel which is rust free and maintains its edge longer than most traditional chef's knives. The steel has a rockwell hardness of HRC59 to 60. The bolster is made of Nickel Silver. Full Tang, staminawood is riveted by Nickel Silver. This combination produces an original, streamlined design that looks as good as it performs.
Excellent balance,nice thin blade,fit and finish are excellent. This is a high performance knife. Even though itís 270mm,itís still easy to do precision tip work (like mincing shallots) with it. Much more agile then my Shun 10" Stainless,which is 22 grams lighter. All in all,an excellent knife.
Great knife. Reliable,thin and tough.

I purchased this knife 3 years ago and have found it to be the best chef knife I have used. The blade is very thin which allows it to cut through very stiff vegetables like squashes and carrots without making the vegetable "cleave" or break. The thin blade also allows the knife to be very light while still being perfectly balanced right at the end of the bolster. The edge retention is remarkably good,having used the knife on multiple cutting surfaces from new hard plastic boards to soft wood boards. While higher carbon steels can get micro-chips this knife’s steel beautifully balances between hardness and flexibility. All around this knife is just beautiful and will make a great addition to any professional and amateur chef’s collection.

Love the Knife. Received it in the mail a few days ago. Really sharp and does kitchen jobs really well. Saves time and is effortless to use. Only downfall......I did not get this knife sooner.
Great Knife!!! So beautiful to hold and cuts like a dream. I love the feel of the handle and cutting is effortless. It is definitely worth the $$$$$$$$$.
