The Hankotsu is a boning knife that has a very different profile to a Honesuki. This style of knife is used to bone hanging and larger cuts of meat as opposed to the Honesuki which is employed more for processing poultry. It is a very stout and tough blade that can take on some serious boning tasks. The blade is made from SK-4 soft carbon steel which takes a really sharp edge. Returning the blade to itís sharp condition is also an easy task with this steel. It has a very asymmetrical grind, almost flat on one side and quite curved on the other. So strictly speaking is better for right handed users. But as this is a short boning knife steerage should not be an issue for left handers. The blade is coupled to a nicely finished black pakka wood handle attached with 3 rivets and a steel bolster. It is balanced to the rear of the bolster. Remember that this is a reactive steel so the knife must be kept very dry between uses. A nice patina will develop however, which will aid in the general maintenance of the blade.
