    Hattori FH vs Misono UX10

    I am in the process of trying to buy a gyuto and a slicer and have heard great things about both of these knives. Does anyone out there have a strong opinion about whether one is superior to the other. I am also open to checking out other brands as well. It is for professional use if that impacts your opinions at all.... Thanks

    If it were up to me I'd get the Hattori FH over the Misono UX10 any day. The Misono is terribly over priced these days. I know there are a few Hattori FH's for sale in the buy/sell/trade forum.

    +1 Misono is alittle chippy. Hattori feels good on the stones. Fit and finish is superb on the Hattori.

    Does the Misono actually chip easily or just not smooth on the stones. I read somewhere that it withstands chipping pretty well.

    Has anyone with experience using many different brands/knives ever went back to a UX-10 as their favorite?

    I just ask because I think the current prices are ridiculous, and I don't see any remarkable characteristics (sans for fit/finish, so I've heard) that would make them a better choice than other knives--some of those being half the cost).

    i owned a UX-10 for a while. it was perfectly reasonably priced at the old price point, but it's not as nice as the FH, and it's terribly overpriced now. terribly. terribly terribly. i mean hell, you can get a Yoshikane kitaeji v2 for just a little bit more, at the Korin cost, anyway, and the Yoshikane is a hugely better knife.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love my two Misonos, but I won't buy another one at the current prices. I keep going back to my Misono Moly, and love how sharp it gets and how nimble it is, but I just can't justify buying another one in the line at that price. Good thing I got it when I did, I guess.

    Misono UX10 is quite stainless, easy to sharpen and takes a nice edge. Edge retention is mediocre. The FH is less stainless but just as easy to sharpen and the edge is nice, too. The construction of the two is similar but the FH is definitely better. A big difference for some is the FH has a med girth, ergonomically shaped handle while the Misono has a "standard" large diameter handle. I wouldn't want either knife for that money but I'd definitely go for the FH over the Misono, esp after the recent price hike.

    Ha! I was so tempted to order a Moly too when I ordered my Swedish 240, 120 petty and Moly parer but I thought it would be OTT... kicking myself in the butt now - hard.

    How is your Yamawaku working out, btw?
