Honesukis are knives that are primarily intended for processing poultry and other birds. They can, of course, be used in other circumstances based upon your needs and likes. These are stout and stiff blades that have a really nice geometry and feature a well-made distal taper from the heel to the fine tip. While honesuki knives are very robust knives, note that they are intended to cut through the joints of a bird, not cleave through the bone.

Considering the very low price point, this knife is well made in terms of grinds and profile. It is a very traditional looking and feeling knife that makes little effort to please in terms of high levels of fit and finish. Rather, the effort has gone into producing a knife that is perfectly fit for purpose while being tough and quite easy to sharpen. The Blue #2 inner core is a great knife steel and together with the good looking kurouchi cladding of soft iron, presents a blade that is tough and will hold an edge for protracted uses.

We are supplying it with a very nice upgraded handle made from red sandalwood and dyed pakka wood for the ferrule.

      Love at first slice, March 13, 2021

    I have always used German style knives but always loved the Japanese style, but price and reading on how specialized they were I couldnt see spending the $$. when I found the youtube videos for this site reviewing knives, I finally felt I could get a Japanese style knife w/o taking out a mortgage. I tend to debone a lot of chicken so I can use the bones for stock later so I went with this style knife. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! the video gave the sharpness of this blade a 5/6 out of 10, if this is accurate, I dont want to know what a 10 is. this thing is crazy sharp out of the box! the look and feel is great (IMO). I would say "for the price" this knife is awesome, but I have nothing to compare it to. that being said, comparing to all the knives I do own, this is an amazing value and would feel the same if I paid double the amount. I cant wait to purchase my next Japanese style knife. oh, I also bought some of the oil that you are suppose to use for carbon steel blades to ensure this knife lasts me a lifetime. a couple of drops after use and cleaning and I hang it back up, easy peasy.
    if you're unsure of getting a Japanese style blade, dont be!
