About the Misono Molybdenum Series: Misonos most affordable line of knives is created with a stain-resistant molybdenum steel blade. The added molybdenum and vanadium gives this line a greater rust resistance and hardness. Misono was established in 1935, and the company has been kept a small, exclusively family-owned business for decades. The company began as a kitchen tool blade maker for vegetable peelers. Today Misono is Japans oldest Western-style knife maker, with only fifty workers producing 150,000 knives a year.
