Considered to be one of the best, if not the best, lines of knives for use in a professional environment, the Misono UX10 is a common sight in top commercial kitchens the world over. The series employs a proprietary Swedish stainless steel with no cladding, which gives excellent feedback to the user. The steel is very easy to sharpen and takes an incredibly refined edge. Treated to achieve an HRC score of roughly 60, these blades wonderfully balance hardness and edge retention with durability and ductility.

The thin, convex grind of the Misono UX10 240mm gyuto enables truly exceptional cutting performance and ingredient separation, yet the weight of the knife imparts a distinct feeling of authority. This knife wonít flinch at even the most robust of produce and is an exceptional performer through a wide range of applications. The stamina wood handle and nickel bolster enhance the bombproof feeling of this knife and impart a sleek, no-nonsense aesthetic to the blade. The edge bevel is slightly asymmetrical, though there is no performance differential between right- and left-handed users. As such, we consider this knife to be truly ambidextrous and a wonderful selection for discerning cooks who demand high performance with equally high levels of durability and versatility.

    absolute best knife on the market. global claims their edge lasts for 6 months, but the only knife that could even come close to that is this one. ive had it for almost a year, and taken it to a stone once. i redid the entire edge to about 8degrees either side (16 total. this is steeper than traditional japanese knives), and it still holds its edge for about a month, and a few swipes on a ceramic steel and its back to splitting hairs. and even at this steepness chipping isnt a problem, as the steel is REALLY flexible. instead of chipping, it just bends a little bit like any other knife does after extended use (purpose for a honing steel). i swear, this is the jesus of knives.

    the only con is that it scuffs pretty easily. i took one bad stroke on a 6k stone and it scuffed really bad. but that also means it takes a polishing well. so its not that big a deal.

    Recently, I placed my first order with ChefsKnivesToGo.com.It was a very pleasant experience. The associate accurately recorded my information, as well as the exact item requested. Although I was told it would take 7 - 10 days, I received my order on day three! You never really know how strong of a commitment to customer service is at a company until there is a problem. Alas, no problems which may be the best indication! I will definitely recommend them and will not hesitate placing future orders. Thank you. Sincerely, Jodi

    I've always used German knives, but needed something that wasn't as curved at the tip as a Wusthof, and not as flat as a Santoku. The Guyoto style looked to be the right choice, and I liked the back-slanted bolster on the UX-10. Mk knife is the 240mm version, and it had a respectable edge out of the box. I'm getting used to the thin blade, but after using this knife in a commercial kitchen for two weeks, and at home, I can say it holds its edge better than most of my heavier German Chef's knives. It could use a granton edge, as I notice that food really sticks to the sides when slicing. Overall, this is a tool that I need, and not a toy; As such, it has been highly serviceable and works just as well on garnish as it does meat.

    The first thing I want to say is that no photo of this knife does it justice. It is really beautifully made with elegant lines. It is more than I expected it to be and I had very high expectations. The knife also has wonderful balance and feel in the hand. This is a big knife with a big handle, but it doesn't have the clunky feel of a German blade. The style reminds me a little of the older carbon steel Sabbatiers - more sword than cleaver. The blade was razor sharp out of the box. I was cooking when it arrived, so I slid the edge down on a stack of six thick bacon slices and it dropped right through to the board. Maybe it's true that fine knives like this one are never perfectly sharp right out of the box, but this one is as sharp as I'll ever need a knife to be. Finally,Chefknivestogo got the Misono to me in record time. It was on its way the day I ordered it. Wonderful service! Thank you.

    This is an excellent knife, the best I have ever tried. It is light, extremely sharp out of the box and has a nice thin blade. I use this knife in the kitchen every day and it is my favorite tool.

    I'm a professional cook and work in a kitchen from sunup to sundown. My knife has to be well-built, balanced, take and hold a razor edge and be comfortable to use. The UX10 answers the call, and then some. At first I thought the handle was a bit too big for my smaller hands, but once you begin using the knife you realize that a simple hand adjustment solves all that. Actually it's an extremely comfortable handle, and the knife has a perfect balance from heel to tip. The steel is beautifully thin and hard, and makes slicing really anything a breeze. For those that need high performance and are willing to pay the price, this is your knife. I'll add that it shipped and arrived faster than perhaps anything I've ever ordered online, and that when I called chef knives for a sharpening question (the included manual was in Japanese), the representative was totally helpful and really knew his stuff. Overall a fantastic website, a fantastic price and a fantastic knife.
