The Shun Classic Honesuki is a Japanese boning knife. The 4-1/2" blade is perfect for maneuvering around bones and between joints. Once you try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the complete control you gain as you process your poultry and other proteins. Its razor-sharp blade makes removing breasts from bone easy and it cuts joint cartilage almost like butter. Scoring and trimming is a breeze, too—and you can use the blade's spine for scraping. Once you've used this Japanese boning knife, you may never go back to a European style again.

The Shun Cutlery Classic knife features a VG-Max "super" steel blade core clad with 34 folded layers per side of stainless Damascus steel. The blade is ground and bead blasted to reveal the beautiful flowing pattern of the Damascus. Each side is sharpened to a 16 degree angle. It features a D-shaped Ebony PakkaWood handle, which is resin-impregnated natural hardwood designed for moisture resistance and longevity. While the D-shaped handle is designed specifically for right-handed use, left-handed users may find it comfortable in hand as well. Shun does sell select left-hand specific handles in the reverse grip.
