The FKM Boning is manufactured by Fujiwara Kanefusa. The blade is made with a mono steel construction of Molybdenum/Vanadium stainless steel. It is hardened to an HRC rating of 58-59. This steel/hardness combination takes and holds a razor sharp edge.
The asymmetrical blade has a grind of 70/30. It also has a convex curve on one side and a flat profile on the other.
The Fujiwara Boning is a slightly less exaggerated version of a Honesuki. Think more radius, less angle. A popular knife primarily employed for the boning of poultry and meats as well as frenching chops etc. Its triangular shape and sharp point allow it easy access to tight spaces. The tall rear (40mm) end give it strength and a rigid and strong feel. Completely unlike its western boning knife counterpart. But it is also a viable slicer and chopper with its gentle but nicely curved edge. A rockers knife.
This knife really is a pleasure to use. Itís easy to sharpen. It feels good in your hand (especially pinch grip). It is well balanced and it can get very sharp with little effort and hold that sharpness for a good while.
Buying speciality knives can get expensive. This is a great way to get a really well made, fun and effective Japanese boning knife at a truly bargain price.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
