    FS: Misono Swedish Carbon 240mm Suji & Honesuki

    Both have been used but not abused in a pro kitchen and there's a solid patina on both. Great knives but I've just outgrown them. The honesuki comes with a saya.

    Hoping to sell these within Australia, if that doesn't happen I'll ship overseas.

    Suji - $100 shipped in AU

    Honesuki - $80 shipped in AU

    They're very much not lefty friendly.

    I just replied to your PM Craig, then saw this.

    It's about 80/20 as was implied from the factory bevels, but it's not hollow on the back so it would be possible to change the bevels, it would just require quite a bit of work...

    The Misono is definitely one that would be better for a lefty if you get a lefty version. I've had occasion to compare the lefty and righty next to each other. To convert it to a lefty bias would take a lot of work and it would still have the basic righty geometry. I did a conversion on a Tojiro for a buddy a couple years back. By the time I was done, it was still fairly righty oriented, but I had ground the left side until the geometry was more of a V grind before I put a lefty bevel on the cutting edge. We had to remove a fair bit of blade in the process. He was happy with it, but I always felt he would have been better served with a proper lefty oriented blade. He did end up eventually getting one, but not until he used the Tojiro for some time.

    Certainly not. Misono produces lefty versions on special order, forget about converting. Or you have to entirely regrind and waste a lot of steel.
