The honesuki is a Japanese boning knife used to butcher meat and poultry. This knife does not have the flexibility of a typical Western boning knife but its sharp, pointed tip helps you ride the blade along bones and joints.

There are very few options on the market for a good quality honesuki that has a neutral edge and a stiff thin blade.

The Takeda Classic has a 50/50 edge grind as well as an octagonal Wa handle making it perfect for both right and left handed users. This knife is commonly used in Japan by Yakatori line cooks for boning chicken but it can be used as a general utility knife, fillet knife and even makes a great steak knife...but don't cut on your plate!

The blade is a san-mai construction of Aogami Super steel with a soft iron outer layer. The outstanding geometry, thin profile and super sharp edge endow this knife with the quick reflexes needed to navigate around a poultry carcass. As you can see from the video the knife also works well to process large fish fillets for sushi prep.

Beautiful and purposeful: the Takeda Classic Honesuki is a piece of highly functional knife art.

  • Weight: 6.2 ounces

    Magic knife. Use it on poultry, ducks, cod, halibut or whatever...It's amazing. An extra plus to CKTG, They managed to deliver in this Covid times. Sorry for my bad English.

      Take the plung, this knife is worth it!, May 14, 2020

    This is a VERY good knife. Aside from it's inherent and obvious quality, this knife just feels good in my hand. It has a larger diameter handle and a very stiff blade. It is razor sharp right out of the box. The combination of the larger handle, stiffness and sharpness allows it to glide nimbly through whole chickens, halves and quarters. No resistance at all. It also works well with pork, fish & beef. I would follow the directions as to not to try to cut through bones directly, go through the joints. Overall a professional and beautiful knife to hold and to use. You will not be disappointed.

    I liked my Takeda Gyuto so much that I bought one of these. It has a sturdy wide blade & nice hefty handle. Besides being a Takeda it is a solid performer as a boning knife & the shape makes it usable for a variety of purposes besides boning. I use it for cubing meat, as a utility knife for everything I do not use my Gyuto for including light cleaver work. As always, service & support at CKTG is as outstanding as the products.
