This is the popular and highly rated classic series made from 5160 leaf spring carbon steel. Ideal for anyone looking to make a step forward into the world of Japanese Carbon Steel knives, but are skeptical about the care level on a knife that could break the bank. With a high performing but reactive blade that requires care, they are known as the affordable top-selling knives.
With an optional fitted wooden saya, the 100% handmade classic series features a finish that must be appreciated by its owner - while they show their true handmade characters and each knife is slightly different, up to including various handle wood shadings, they are considered an ideal platform for anyone looking to experiment sharpening, thinning or even polishing carbon steel.
Considered as a poultry butchering knife, the style name translates into "bone knife". Usually known for their none-flexible blade and thick spine, this model has a sharp tip ideal to work around bones and joints. That being said, many have modernized this knife shape and started using it as their daily utility because of it's particular shape and feel. It also features an uncommon double bevel "V" grind for this shape - This grind makes such honesuki shape not only ideal for butchering but also for daily utility tasks.
