Sakai Takayuki Shirogami Honesuki 150mm

About the Shape -The Honesuki is a Japanese style of boning knife. Originally designed for poultry and small animals like rabbit, it excels for many larger butchering and fish filleting work or thanksgiving turkey! It is typically larger than a honesuki, and often has a single-bevel edge for added sharpness. You don't want to force this knife through bone, but it's perfect for cutting through cartilage and tendons.
