Description: Honesuki are Japanese boning/utility knives. Great for boning chicken and red meats but also amazing as a general purpose utility knife! The shape provides finger clearance when working over a cutting board. A gentle rock to the blade makes it an optimal chopping knife. The thin, aggressive point makes it even capable of detail tasks where a paring knife would otherwise be used.
Kasumi knives are forged in Seki Japan, an area with over 800 years of smithing history. The blade is formed by forging folded layers of soft stainless steel (called a Jigane) around a central core formed from VG10 stainless steel. The central core is tempered to 59 - 60 Rc. This results in an exceptionally keen, long-lasting edge.
The blade is forged quite thin so as to have little or no resistance when cutting through food. Following in the best tradition of knife making, a steel ferrule is forge-welded to the tang to ensure that food particles cannot become lodged between the tang and the handle. Wooden handles are formed from resin impregnated hardwood. These hold up exceptionally well in a demanding kitchen environment.
