We've recently upgraded this model (formerly Fujiwara FKM semi-stainless) to fully stainless steel and a much more durable handle. These tough, and good-looking knives are the product of years of research and age-old craftsmanship conjoined over 600 years of knife making.

The Takayuki Inox Honesuki is made from stainless steel which Takayuki calls Inox. Inox is derived from the French “inoxydable,” and is usually an alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium by mass. The actual stainless alloy is a proprietary secret but it is a full stainless alloy that is stamp-cut to produce the mono-steel blade.

The honesuki is a Japanese-style boning knife that differs from the western variety in several ways. Primary among them is the triangular shape and very stiff blade. It works well as a poultry knife, but will also perform most deboning or filleting tasks. It is not designed to cut through bones, however. This particular blade is ground on both sides with an asymmetrical edge that favors right-handed users.

The blade is mated to a western style handle made from POM. POM, or polyoxymethylene, is a very stable material perfectly suited for use in the kitchen. This nicely made handle is attached to the full tang with three stainless rivets.

      Surprisingly high value for the price, September 24, 2022
    Posted By: MR

    I ordered 4 of these and 2 Gyuto knifes. I did not expect such a surprisingly high value of these knifes for the great price Chef knife to go offers. Sharpness 10 out of 10, very nimble and smart grind. Compares with much much higher value knifes in fit and finish. I am very happy that I did buy these knifes. I highly recommend these before sale is over.

      Excellent Honesuki, August 19, 2022
    Posted By: Mike Hansen

    I tossed around the idea of a honesuki for a long time and after studying all of the offerings from CKTG, I settled on this knife. I have always boned out my chicken (less expensive than preboned chicken) and really questioned whether the expense of an additional knife was warranted. After all, there just being two of us to cook for (wife and I), I do not have to bone a case of birds at one time.

    Those considerations being said, I finally decided on this Honesuki. The price point being one strong point and the reviews being another. Upon receiving this little jewel I discovered that it made the deboning process a welcome change from european stlye boning knives. OOTB fit and finish and sharpness were first class. Taking the knife to my stones (I choose to keep my knife edges sharpened to the 10th degree), I found that it sharpened easily to a razors edge. This has been wonderful addition to my bourgening knife collection.

      Great Value, Make It Single Bevel and WOW!
    Posted By: DAN MORRIS

    Out of the box sharpness was ok but I'm turning it into a single bevel knife by sharpening the convex side at a very shallow angle, ie 12 degrees and then laying the other side dead flat at the very end to remove the burr. Now this blade is screaming sharp! I just blew through 8 lbs of chicken wings to break it in. I'm cutting each wing each into 3 pieces and the blade is still push cut sharp. My next session I'm going to continue until I have a 100% single bevel knife. This knife is a great value, so I can see why it's popular in Pro kitchens.

    This knife is extremely sharp and perfect for boning as well as small knife work. Excellent value as well as a great introduction to Japanese knives for new cooks.

    Beautiful, well-balanced knife that is a pleasure to use. Although it is designed to break down meats, it performs equally well on vegetables. A great value for the price.

      Great little knife

    This knife will get a lot of use and not just for chicken fabrication. At that price I don't think it can be beat for quality and versatility--the only smaller knife I use anymore. Solid fit & finish, spectacular grind--everything seems to just fall away from the blade. Only the out of box sharpness was unimpressive. Initially I was disappointed since I've never owned a knife with an asymmetrical bevel before, something like 80/20 if not 85/15, and was concerned about sharpening. I had hoped to use it a bit before I had to cross that bridge but it wasn't anywhere near sharp enough to bone a chicken with. I might have deducted a star for that except that I easily and quickly got it very sharp--even though I am hardly an expert sharpener. Highly recommended without reservation.

      Stunning
    Posted By: Mark - verified customer

    I purchased this knife as a replacement for my victorinox boning knife, and it has not disappointed since I received it. Brilliant design, very light and good for hours of butchery, I'd also like to note that I ordered it on a Monday, it arrived on the Wednesday, and I'm in UK! I would recommend this knife to fellow chefs.

    This is a fantastic knife. Not only a great boning knife, but I have been using it as my go to utility knife. It's perfect for cutting up raw potatoes, they don't stick to the knife at all. This is my new everything knife...love it.

    For the price, this knife is more of a work of art when you cut through anything. It sharpens quickly and is a great go- to knives in my entire collection.

    Posted By: Anthony - verified customer

    I bought this knife only to add a honesuki to my collection. Wow! F & F are average, but it has a hamaguriba (convex blade profile) and excellent OOTB sharpness. Lamb chops seem to peel off the rack instead of being cut off. Chicken bones seem to rise out of the meat by magic. Do not hesitate to buy this knife.

    Great knife, very stiff, good wieght in the handle. As far as values go, it's hard to beat. Only thing I would change is to offer a version in Carbon steel for those who prefer it.

    Again the fujiwara FKM series amazes me for the value. a true bargain. This boning knife came with a very good factory edge. I didnt sharpen it until I had cleaned 50 chickens. When I did sharpen it I was thrilled by the edge it took. For the dollar spent, maybe the best knife I have ever purchased.
