Misuzu knives are a great new addition to our store. They are made in a small, family-run blacksmith shop located in Miki, Japan. So far, we have been selling knives constructed from SKS93 stainless steel, but recently they have sent us some new additions that are made with VG10. This is one of the most popular stainless steels among Japanese knife makers, as it possesses good edge retention and is very wear and corrosion resistant. The step up to VG10 steel takes these great knives to a higher level compared to their siblings, especially with regard to edge stability, ease of sharpening, and stain resistance.
The blade length of this knife is slightly longer than many bunka blades, which, together with the added height, results in a comfortable sized knife for most applications and users. There is a long flat spot from the heel to about two thirds along the edge, which transitions into a gentle curve to the tip. This is a fairly lightweight knife that will appeal to those who seek a compact and easy to wield cutter. It has a very solid, reassuring feel in the hand and on the board.
This knife comes with a nice ho wood and buffalo horn handle in an octagonal shape.
