These blades are forged for us in a small family business in Miki (Hyogo Prefecture, Japan). The family also runs a store in Miki, the city with the longest history in Japanese knifemaking. Misuzu continues in this tradition, handcrafting Japanese kitchen knives for professional demands and ambitious hobby chefs to this day.
The focus is always on highest sharpness and at the same time user-friendliness of the Japan knives. The basic philosophy at Misuzu is that "the knife should be a tool that does not cause fatigue".
For over 70 years, the use of steels that are not very susceptible to rust has been Misuzu's hobbyhorse. We also offer such blades from Misuzu with the steel grades VG10 and AUS10. The offered Santoku knives are very light and are ideal all-purpose knives for hobby chefs.
