The honesuki is a Japanese boning knife used to butcher meat and poultry. They are distinctive in that the shape is triangular and they are stiff. These knives are increasing in popularity as more people become familiar with the superior performance of Japanese knives in general and the honesuki in particular. This knife does not have the flexibility of a typical Western boning knife but its sharp, pointed tip helps you ride the blade along bones and joints. The blade is a mono steel construction of AEB-L stainless steel. We hardened this steel to 60.5-61 HRC. The very nice geometry, thin profile and super sharp edge endow this knife with the quick reflexes needed to navigate around a poultry carcass. It is a single bevel blade, so itís almost flat on the back side.

The handle is fabricated from black linen micarta which is a very tough material, perfectly suited for heavy duty work while being easy on the hand over the long haul. The name Artifex is the Latin word for artisan or worker. We created this knife line specifically for people in the food service industry looking for a great blade that is tough, versatile and easy to maintain. All at a wallet friendly price.
