The story of Misono began in 1935. The firm foundation was initiated by the desire to create a medium-sized family-oriented business. For almost 30 years, Misono has been a producer of kitchen instruments for vegetable peelers. Then, in the late 1960s, the firm began manufacturing its signature Misono chef knives.
Nowadays, only 50 employers work in the firm, which crafts 150.000 Misono knives per year. So, the company managed to maintain the status of a small business. What is more, Misono is the oldest representative of Western-style cutlery production in the country.
Although the firm does not have so many workers as large local manufactures, it does not delegate the production of their knives components to other cutlery providers. All Misono Japanese knives are produced by the company masters in accordance with original techniques.
The craftsmen pay attention to every detail of each Misono knife because, due to the Japanese tradition of cutting tools making, almost the whole manufacturing process is hand-made. Moreover, no Misono chef knife could be presented on the market until it passes all necessary steps of quality examination.
Misono cutting instruments have become that popular because they are perfect for professional use. The combination of hand-made sharpening and hard stainless steel makes Misono tools comfortable and reliable.
