Blade Type

The Honesuki knife, a traditional Japanese boning knife, is uniquely crafted for poultry butchery. Its triangular, sturdy blade is adept at maneuvering around bones, joints, and tendons, offering precise control. With a pointed tip for detailed work, the Honesuki is indispensable for chefs specializing in meat preparation.

Steel Type

Japanese SG2, also known as R2 steel, is a high-end, powdered metallurgy stainless steel and one of the finest knife-making steels available in Japan. It is a favourite of many for its exceptional hardness and edge retention. Its fine, uniform grain structure enables razor-sharp edges, all the while holding an edge for much longer than Carbon steel knives, without needing to be concerned about rust appearing.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.
