Misono Swedish Carbon steel series is made with Swedish carbon steel, with a high level of purity and each knife is hand-ground and finished. Being pure carbon steel, these knives will react to moisture and acidity present in foods and may cause some discoloration; this is harmless and natural. We recommend that a rust remover is purchased in conjunction with these knives to remove patina and possible rust that may form. Letting a patina (black iron oxide) form on the outside of the blade will reduce further reactivity with foods and make the blade's surface more stable.
These knives are very easy to sharpen and maintain; they may be maintained with a honing rod although we always recommend stones as the preferable method of maintenance. The steel is very easy to deburr and achieves a keen edge with ease.
The Santoku is a cross between a Nakiri and Gyuto, originally intended for the home cook. It is a multipurpose knife that can be used for cutting meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
