About the Shape -The Honesuki is a Japanese style boning knife. Originally designed for poultry and small animals like rabbit, it excels for many larger butchering and fish filleting work. It has a relatively thick heel for scraping meat from bones, and a thinner tip for precise cuts. You don't want to force this knife through bone, but it's perfect for cutting through cartilage and tendons.

HAP40 high speed powder steel, which can attain a Rockwell Hardness of 67+. In layman’s terms, it’s insanely hard steel that gets wicked sharp and holds an edge like nothing else.
