UX10 Series

Misono’s UX10 series is Misono’s high-end knife series. It sports a blade steel crafted out of high-quality, Swedish stainless steel, a type of steel that is popular and distinguished both domestically and internationally for its high level of purity. Swedish steel knives are remarkably durable and greatly rust-, stain- and wear- resistant making them easy to maintain over a long course of time. The knives in this series have an HRC (hardness) of around 58-59 giving them a reliable edge retention duration and allowing them to be sharpened relatively easily. Each knife comes equipped with a black pakkawood, resin imbued and waterproof handle, and a riveted nickel-silver bolster for balance.

More on Swedish steel: In Sweden, iron ore, that ore that is used to make steel, runs very rich, and so for many centuries metalworkers in Sweden worked to cultivate the ore and develop many metals with it, including steel for tools such as kitchen knives. This long-standing tradition of working with iron coupled with their naturally rich iron ore deposits is what gave Sweden its reputation for crafting high-quality steel knives.

Recommendation: This series is recommended for intermediate and professional cooks/chefs but can also be used by beginning cooks because of its low-maintenance aspect. The knives in Misono’s UX10 series are easy to maintain and not very difficult to sharpen; we recommend that an individual have at least an intermediate level of sharpening knowledge and experience before purchasing a knife from this series.
