Moritaka AS Kurouchi Honesuki 150mm

About the Shape: The Honesuki is a Japanese style boning knife. Originally designed for poultry and small animals like rabbits. 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.

Blacksmith/Maker Moritaka Hamono

About Moritaka Hamono: To talk about Moritaka knives is to talk about history. Moritaka Hamono was founded in 1293, which means the Moritaka family has been working as blacksmiths on the southern Kyushu for more than 720 years. Yes, every man in the family has been making knives for 27 generations. 
The Moritakas forge-weld their own warikomi steel (triple laminated) rather than buying it pre-laminated from the factory, because they prefer to stick with traditional methods that are proven. Everything about their knives is rooted in tradition.
