Katsushige Anryu is a veteran blacksmith with over 50 years of experience making some of the most highly regarded blades coming out of Japan. He is responsible for the forging of the knives bearing his name as well as others including Masakage Mizu and Kumo knives.

He has used Hitachi Aogami #2 carbon steel in the manufacture of this honesuki kitchen knife. He hardens the steel to 63 HRC and then wraps the core in stainless steel for ease of maintenance. The inner Blue (Aogami) #2 steel will take an extremely keen edge with ease and hold that edge for a long time. While wrapped in stainless steel, the carbon core of the knife will discolor with normal use and could rust if abused. Keep it dry and clean and you are good to go!

The honesuki is a Japanese version of a boning knife. It is quite different from a Western boning knife. This is mainly due to its triangular shape and the fact that it is a very stiff blade with very little flex. The honesuki works very well for deboning all kinds of proteins including poultry and typically has an asymmetrical edge. However, this knife is ground on both sides with a symmetrical 50/50 edge. Be warned that while it is a boning knife, it is not meant to cut through bones. It is made to cut through the joints of the bird. Due to its shape and height, the honesuki can also double up nicely as a utility or petty style of knife. Comes with a very nice oval rosewood and pakka wood handle.

    This is a great knife, and for the quality the price is on point. It's got a great edge and breaking down a whole chicken was a breeze. Nice balanced weight and I really like the hammered finish. The only thing I found is that one side of the handle had a raise where the handle meets the ferrule, but it's not something that I'm aware of while using it. Other than that, the fit and finish is very nice. Definitely recommend this knife.
