Knife Handle & Comfort

The reinforced wooden handle is nicely made and designed with comfort. All the way from the butt of the handle to the riveted nickel silver bolster.

It sits naturally in your fingers, Misono did a great job with the comfort of the handle. The handle emphasizes the comfort around the fingers since it is a Petty knife. The added contours add natural comfort with multiple gripping styles.

This is done by making the knife handle thin and long enough for small to large hand sizes. The thickness of 13mm of the handle is ideal and sits very nicely around your fingers.

The handle length is around 11.4cm as long as your finger width excluding your thumb does not exceed 9cm the handle will be comfortable.

Gripping Style & Balance Point

There are 2 gripping styles I recommend and that is the pinch grip at the bolster or a fingertip grip.

Both gripping styles will make the knife middle balanced and it is great for smaller tasks and gives you the optimal control over the blade.

With both of the gripping styles, you are holding the knife loosely and letting the handle rest around your fingers.

Knife Profile

The blade profile is relatively flat that comes with a gentle curve that is ideal for slicing work.

Sharpness

The out-of-the-box sharpness is great, the knife comes with a mirror-polished edge. The 70/30 bevel will give you a smoother slicing performance, on softer produce but may struggle a bit on denser produce but that has mainly to do with the knife style which is a Petty.

Key Takeaway & Recommendation

The Misono UX10 Petty is well-balanced, and the attention to comfort and usage is great. This Petty is ideal for those that work in a professional kitchen if you have to do a lot of smaller and more precise task that has to be done on a cutting board. This knife comes with premium pricing which has diminishing returns for home cooks but will be a great investment for the professional cooks that have to do a lot of small precise cutting work. There is only one minor detail that is bugging me and that is the slight protrusion on the full tang handle. It is not noticeable during use but if you seek and feel for it with your fingers you will notice it, and for the premium price point I wish that they fixed that minor detail.
