Description: Honesuki are Japanese boning 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.
This left handed knife has a convex grind on the left side of the blade and is flat ground on the right. This makes it particularly effective for cutting meat away from bones or any type of thin slicing, whether meats or vegetables.
Construction of the blade begins with bundles of special alloy stainless steel wire which are repeatedly folded together and forge-welded by hand. This time consuming process creates a Jigane (the outside layers of the blade) with a beautiful Damascus pattern. The maker than begins preparation of the Hagane (the middle layer of the blade) by hand forging high carbon steel, alloyed with cobalt. The basic construction of the blade is competed by forge-welding the Hagane between two layers of Jigane. Following in the best tradition of knife making, a steel ferrule is forge-welded to the tang to ensure that food particles can not become lodged between the tang and the handle. The handle, made from multiple layers of wood impregnated with resin, is riveted to the full length tang and will last a lifetime. The blades are fully honed.
