At my work we had a major kitchen change (I do not work in kitchen). Kitchen under new management and all new hires starting next week. As I was filling trash bags like crazy I found this knife. I am the idiot cleaning the kitchen.

I asked around. Turns out this knife belonged to the Saus chef who takes care of his stuff. He went on vacation and left his knife by mistake a few months back. One of the ding-bats used it while he was gone and put it to the communal stone (crappy steel eating stone). Well ding bat screwed it up. Saus chef lost his mind (pissed) when he got back and just gave it ding bat. Ding bat is gone now and left knife. It is now my knife. I am going to let a professional fix it for me. Notice how its not flat anymore because it was over sharpened in the center. You can see the gap on the counter top picture.

I thing it is a Misono Honesuki Boning 145mm

Is it a UX 10 or 440 series? I suspect 440

I was looking to buy a Honesuki to play with about a month ago but my finances did not allow it.

It looks to me, more like a poorly sharpened Gyuto or Santoku than a Honesuki.

Looks like a cut-down santoku to me. I wouldn't put too much money into servicing this one.

Yeah, looks more like a crazy screwed up gyuto. What's the height at the heel a the length on the edge.

I wouldn't put any money into it, definately not a honesuki (notice the tip shape). Great knife to learn how to do major repair on though

A free Misono is nothing to sneer at. You could certainly make it serviceable.

It's the molybdenum steel series, it's the only one that has the "handmade" in that position, and probably a gyuto.
