The Kanehide TK Gokujo Boning Knife is made with a mono steel construction of a proprietary steel called TK. The steel combines several attributes of a stainless steel (less prone to corrosion and thus less maintenance) with the edge holding and ease of sharpening associated with full carbon blades. The alloy is hardened to 61 Rockwell.
It is the same steel found in the popular Kikuichi TKC line of knives but at a far lower price!
Boning knives come in many shapes and sizes. In general these knives are unified by their pointed tips and sturdy construction while differing in their profile, degree of flex, and whether they are double beveled or single beveled.
The Kanehide TK Gokujo Boning knife features a single bevel grind which dictates that right-handed users are the target audience. It has a very curved blade and super pointed tip for getting between ribs and bones. It also aids in removing fat and silver skin without damaging the flesh.
Boning proteins can be a very slippery job so the knife features a contoured handle made from Fibrox, which is a very durable material with a textured surface for a secure, nonslip grip.
