  2. Misono Handmade Utility 120mm

    The 120mm Utility/Paring is the most familiar shape and size in most Western kitchens and thus amongst the most heavily used blades in domestic kitchens. It is comfortable for those who are disconcerted by large blades. With its very sharp edge, narrow profile and manageable length this knife is actually designed for the preparation of fish & game as well as gentle shinning and skinning work.

  3. Misono Handmade Santoku (3 Sizes)

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. The breadth of blade is ideally suited for cutting against the knuckle with speed – this technique provides safe comfortable cutting action only when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on the knuckle. The relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this a great choice as the primary blade for those who prepare mostly vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task. Particularly well suited to a more horizontal or slicing action to cut as opposed the more classic French techique of roll cutting on a board. This slim, lighter (than its Santoku brother) blade makes a wonderfully impressive SMALL carving knife. Ideal for creating awe inspiringly wafer thin slices from your Sunday joint or equally elegant cuts from fish and cold meats. Like any Artisan knife it also capable of tackling the hardest vegetables like celeriac and swede with consummate ease. If you keep your edge lovely and silky there is no reason why this relatively narrow blade should not meet many domestic fish challenges like slicing, light filleting etc with ease.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.

  4. Misono Handmade Gyuto (3 sizes)

    This slimmer (than its Santoku brother) blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword. It is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. It is the Japanese adaptation of the classic French cooks knife. This familiiar looking blade represents optimal versatility as it tapers from broad base to narrow point allowing efficient contact cutting, slicing and ocasional carving. The curved edge profile facilitates easier rolling action than most Santoku’s when cutting vegetables – with the revolutionary design of the Santoku in this collection this may no longer be an issue. The major difference in this collection between the two shapes is the blade width. The Gyuto is narrower making it able to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other foods that have a tendency to stick to the side of the blade. If you require the knife to cut more raw / cooked flesh (meat or fish) than vegetables and want to double it up for occasional carving or only use / prefer a classic western style shape, then the Gyuto is ideal.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.

  5. Misono Handmade Utility150mm

    150mm - Utility Knife is the most familiar blade in Western kitchens and as such tends to be widely used in many homes; it does allow easy preparation of many ingredients and doubles up beautifully as a small carving and slicing blade. However the utility knife is with its narrow profile tapering to full point is actually designed for the preparation and filleting of fish and small game and thus is referred to as the Fish and Game knife essential in any professional chefs kitchen and reassuringly familiar for home cooks reluctant to venture into the domain of long wide bladed chefs knives.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers or for any use other than food preparation. ONLY FOR CULINARY USE.
