With a blade height of 33mm, this sabaki is taller than most petties, behaving and feeling more like a mini gyuto. Classically the sabaki is used to remove meat from bones easily and efficiently...but don’t cut through bones, please! Of course, the knife will also do sterling work as a regular petty for those looking for some extra board clearance.

The Blue #1 Steel used by Murata-san is a high carbon steel and as such requires some care. However when coupled to the “black hammer” kurouchi finish, much of that maintenance is mitigated. A lovely octagonal Wa handle completes the package.

High performance and great edge retention are hallmarks of Murata Buho knives and this fun and useful implement is a perfect example of the breed.

*Please note, the tips on these knives are ground off at an angle. This is intentional. See the second photo to see what it looks like.

    5  Very pleased with the Sabaki!, December 21, 2015

    I ordered this knife with the sole intent to debone chicken breasts; it came at the recommendation of SteveG.As a boning knife, or knife to perform the tasks I asked of it - it performed exceptionally well!The B#2 steel took a great edge; in fact so sharp I shaved with it!Handle:While shopping and looking at the product photos I was under the idea that I was going to replace the factory handle; as it was to be chicken "salmonella" machine.When the knife arrived I was rather impressed with the hand!It is sealed very well with laquer.. so no need to replace it, or do anything with it!The fit between the tang and handle are also great, and sealed well. No issues with rusty tang here.Blade:Being my first B#2 I didn't know what to expect.The edge was OK OOTB, but after a few minutes on the Edge Pro, and a strop or two on the leather... it was shaving, literally! I shaved a large portion of my face with it,a nd was in absolute awe at how insanely sharp this knife gets!Performance:As a protein petty: this thing is a beast!When I used it to debone chicken breasts it was a magical experience; meaning, the knife is so sharp that I never felt the tip contact the meat. It was as if the tenderloins were magically falling off the bone on their own. As a petty for veg and other items:It is a bit thick as the spine for a normal, everyday petty as it wedges in items like potatoes.It's not a CON, or slam at the knife -- just know ahead of time what you are getting. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase!
