Need a good alternative to Misono.

Tue Jun 26, 2012 3:18 pm

Hi,

I'm in the process of filling up my shopping basket with these knives (chef, utility, santoku and sujihiki), however a lot forums poo-poo these knives for the fact they are no longer worth the money.

Can you recommend something in a similar price range that is worth the money? My key requirements are: well balanced, super sharp yet and remains sharp and has a european handle?

Thanks a lot,

Michael

Hi Michael,

Sure I can help.

Are you right handed?
Do you know how to sharpen?
Do you like to rock the knife or push cut primarily?
Do you want a stainless knife?
How much did you want to spend?

Do you mind if I post your question on our forum?




Kind Regards,

Right handed
Can hone
Rock rather than chop
Stainless is all I know (not interested in ceramic)
I'm happy to spend up to $250osh for a chefs knife.

Cheers,

Michael

Hi Michael,

We may get some suggestions from others. Here is the post:

This Hiromoto is a little over your budget but it's a great knife and the edge retention on this knife is high. Plus the custom handle is beautiful and really makes it special.

This Kanehiro is an excellent knife as well and really fun to use:

This Konosuke Ginsan Wa-Gyuto is a great knife and fully stainless. I love these knives and the steel holds it's edge well.

The first 2 knives are stainless clad with carbon steel cores on the edge so they will form a nice looking patina on the edge over time. You need to wipe them dry when you're done using them or they could rust a little. The third one is fully stainless.
