I absolutely love my Misen chef's knife. It's really sharp and has a good weight to it which makes it easy to use. The quality is great and has held up nicely after almost two years of use.

Super minimal packaging, and lovely knives, really really love them. Compare well with my expensive Japanese one, but at a much more affordable price. Would recommend!
Some faster shipping options would be nice
I bought their chef's knife and loved it. I learned to cook (and chop) with a standard, german-shaped chef's knife and despite years of trying gyutus and santukos never got used to those shapes. So when I had the chance to buy a Japanese-style blade in a German shape, I jumped on it. The knife is very sharp, stays sharp, and is easy to hone and sharpen. It's comfortable to use with a classic choked grip for long chopping sessions and the blue handle looks extra nice. And without the bolster it's easy to sharpen the full length of the blade.
I'd like a 6-inch version!
Bought their carbon steel pan but it was so weird that it had a long handle for no reason; it could barely fit in my oven. Also, seasoning it was a very consuming process but it didn't seem to season well. All the layers were easily stripped after a wash and now the pan is all rusted.
These were the first set we bought when moving in and still work great! While the bread knife doesn't see much use, the other two have been quite reliable for our uses.
Bought a full knives set and they look and work great
Very sharp to start but that faded quickly.
I've tried their Chef's knife and their carbon steel pans so far. Knife was great, especially compared to my IKEA knives. If you're able to get in on their Kickstarter early bird deals, those tend to be quite good relative to other brands on the market.
Still figuring out the carbon steel pan and if I like it, which is how I landed on a 3 instead of a 4. Would also note that if you back them on Kickstarter, don't bank on orders being fulfilled on-time (though in their defense, delays lately were mostly pandemic-related).
