Description: You'll love this Japanese boning knife!
Got poultry? This is your knife. The Shun Classic Honesuki is a Japanese boning knife. The 4-1/2 inch blade is perfect for maneuvering around bones and between joints. Once you try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the complete control you gain as you process your poultry and other proteins. Its razor-sharp blade makes removing breasts from bone easy and it cuts joint cartilage almost like butter. Scoring and trimming is a breeze, too -- and you can use the blade's spine for scraping. Many chefs find the Shun Classic Honesuki to also be a perfect choice for all sorts of precision cutting. It combines a shorter, easily maneuverable blade with enough height for plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. Once you've used this Japanese boning knife, you may never go back to a European style again.
The stunningly beautiful Shun line of kitchen cutlery is forged by Kai in Japan and distributed through Kershaw. Shun's proprietary, high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that is sharp, durable, corrosion resistant, and beautiful to behold!
'D' shape Black Pakkawood handles provide beauty and function. The 'D' shape is designed for right handed users and provides maximum comfort and control. Pakkawood provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance.
