Masashi Shiroshu Honesuki 150mm

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.

About Masashi Shiroshu - Masashi-san makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade, working entirely by himself hand-forging, sharpening, and putting on the handles. He’s also a bit of a risk taker, forging knives in his flip-flops and lighting cigarettes off white-hot knife steel. Bad. Ass. This shiny, sexy damascus blade combines extreme good-looks with ruggedness and ease of maintenance. SLD stainless steel gets razor sharp, but doesn't rust like carbon steel.
