About the shape - The Honesuki is a Japanese style boning knife. Originally designed for poultry and small animals like rabbit. I promise this knife will change the way you think about taking apart a chicken. The Honesuki has a relatively thick spine for scraping meat from bones. Due to the hardness of Japanese steel you still wouldn’t want to force this knife through bone.
About the Fujiwara Maboroshi - Swordsmith Teruyasu Fujiwara IV has named these knives Maboroshi no Meito, “Visionary Sword Celebrated in Victory” — a bold claim, but one that is deserved. People regularly gasp when they slice a tomato or potato with Fujiwara-san’s knives in the shop. The knives of Teruyasu Fujiwara are real darlings of Knifewear. These blades of his are remarkable. The quality of the sharpness is nearly unparalleled and the edge retention blows my mind. Professional chefs generally hold a knife by pinching the blade with the thumb and forefinger. The unique finger notch cut from the choil makes this grip even easier and more comfortable. The kanji on the knife blade 藤原照康作 reads “Fujiwara Teruyasu Saku” (Made by Teruyasu Fujiwara).
