    The hattori handle is perfect for me.... But the misono is not quite as much. What does getting a knife rehandled cost?

    I'm in Hong Kong- no knives here. But japan I'm sure has such services.

    Bout $150 or so. Or you could invest the money into some tools and try it yourself.

    I have both the Misono UX-10 (210 mm) and the Hattori (240 mm). I prefer the Hattori handle, but the blade is head and shoulders above the Misono in terms of holding an edge. Easy to sharpen for me, stays sharp much longer, no chipping in my experience.

    Not speaking for others and not sure whether it matters: I found my Misono 240 Dragon very, very reactive OOTB. About as a Fujiwara FKH, minus the sulfur. It quickly calmed down after forcing a patina and using the blade a lot. By the way: try a hot coffee patina. Dab the degreased steel. Rinse with boiling hot water, and repeat a few times. Not as spectacular as some vinegars but very effective and lasting.
