The Honesuki is a lighter and thinner version of the classic Garasuki butchering knife. Its short, triangular, pointed blade enables the user to get into the tightest places while stripping meat from bone cleanly and efficiently. While it is inherently a strong blade it should not be used for cutting through bone.
The Shun Blue Steel Honesuki is a san-mai construction wherein blue #2 carbon steel is sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. The Blue #2 steel is hardened to 61 Rockwell and takes on a great edge. You will see it develop a lovely patina along the edge where the blue steel is exposed. A proper maintenance regime of hand washing and carefully drying is still required to keep these knives looking good.
Beautifully crafted, these knives feature a mirror-polish that enhances stain resistance, while the light bead-blasting along the edge shows off the san-mai construction. Each knife features a traditional Japanese style handle and comes with a plastic saya or knife sheath.

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.
