I have had the privilege of buying multiple knives from you in the past.

I am in the precess of replacing a 15 year old Kasumi 5 inch utility knife that is close to the #82012 knife here.

I was thinking of the Misono UX10 series but they have a single bevel. Cheaper single bevel knives that I have used drive me nuts.
I assume that this knife is much better.

I have purchased Takayuki Hammered Damascus and Tojiro knives from you in the past.

I am retired and enjoy cooking as my daily activity.

I am looking for a 5 inch utility knife that I won't want to replace for another 10 - 15 years.

Your recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Tudor

There are a bunch of good choices on the site.

Would you like to try a wa handle? They're fun to use and I like them a lot. Also, do you want stainless or would you like to try carbon steel or stainless clad around carbon?

This little Kikuichi is an excellent one if you want stainless wa handle: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kiswwadape15.html

If you want stainless with a western handle try this Hiromoto with G3 Stainless steel: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/higi15pe.html

The Misono UX10 is not single bevel...it's asymetrically ground slightly to the right bias....but definitely not single bevel.

I do like the Hiromoto G3 recommendation, but another good one is the Masamoto VG:

I have handled a few of the Hiromotos and really like them, it will probably be my next purchase through CKTG.
