The primary function of a honesuki knife is to process poultry and other birds. It is perfect for this task because of its stiff and rugged triangular shaped blade. It features an extremely pointed tip which is just right for getting into the joints of birds and around the small bones and cartilage. But please remember it is not made for breaking bones, which is where a cleaver comes into play.
This is an indispensable tool for the home chef who prefers to fabricate and process chicken, turkey, and game birds at home. We've found that it is possible to save substantial amounts of money buying chicken and turkey whole and cutting our own pieces for serving. Whole chicken and turkey is often several dollars less expensive per pound when purchased this way.
This knife is also a stellar choice for professionals who need a simple, efficient, and lightweight knife that is easy to sharpen and maintain while costing far less than other comparable knives. This is a really good honesuki with good steel and a durable, lightweight Fibrox handle that has a textured surface for a secure, nonslip grip. Due to the single bevel grind, this one is for right-handed users.

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.
