    About Misono ミソノ

    Family-run Misono is Japan’s oldest Western-style knife maker based in Seki City, Japan. Established nearly 90 years ago, Misono began as a maker of vegetable peelers, and started producing their own knives in the 1960s. With only 50 workers, they insist on producing all their western-styled knives in their workshop in the traditional Japanese way - hand-forged, hand-grinded and hand-sharpened. Marrying the user-friendliness of the West and the qualities of the Orient, Misono continues to be a brand loved by global customers.


    Wash and dry with a soft sponge, and safely store after use. Avoid cutting into bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.

    Cutting Surface:

    Wood, rubberized boards and high-end composites, and quality plastics such as polyethylene make acceptable cutting surfaces, and will help protect and prolong knife’s edge. AVOID glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, non-forgiving surfaces.


    We recommend sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones, as we believe they yield the best results for your knives. This knife has a 70/30 ground double bevel edge. You should sharpen at the same angle for both sides, but follow the same grind ratio of 70/30.
