Product Description

The Shun Classic 4.5-Inch Honesuki Knife is designed to remove bones from fish, meat and poultry. The unique blade shape is perfect for maneuvering around bones and between joints, while its razor-sharpness 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. Shun Classic knife blades are made with solid core of VG-MAX steel and feature a 16 degree cutting angle on each side. The ebony D-Shape PakkaWood handles have that sleek, sophisticated look that makes these knives feel more like art, than instrument, and are specifically designed for premium applications. The specially shaped handles rest perfectly in the curve of the fingers, for a more secure grip while handles remain moisture resistant. The bolster is ground out more on the right side for proper finger placement, as well as balancing the knives perfectly. Precision blades and handle engineering mean long-lasting use and comfort-no matter how large or small your kitchen prep may be. Crafted in Seki City Japan, Shun Classics are forged in the tradition of samurai sword making. These heirloom quality knives will be a prized treasure you'll want to pass down to family for generations.

Holy Moley! This knife rocks. You will feel like a surgeon with this blade in hand. Allows precision cuts, razor sharp, and really well balanced. Having used/owned 12 different Shun Classic blades, this one is exceptional for its intended use, breaking down whole Chickens, boning legs of Lamb, and other similar tasks where a short and sharp blade allows the user to work around bone and ligament to section whole birds.

I immediately went out the day I received this knife and bought four whole chickens to practice.....absolutely amazing blade. Having years of experience in cutting meats and culinary preparation, I was totally satisfied and then some with this Honesuki. Bear in mind however, this blade won't instantly turn you into an expert. There are a number of videos that illustrate the techniques necessary to do this [...] and once you practice a bit, you get the hang of the moves necessary to section out your bird.

Our family eats a lot of chicken, and breaking down your own birds saves you a lot of money...enjoy!

I have been wanting this knife for a long time, but wasn't sure if I should spend the money and add it to my already vast Shun collection. I received it today and was disappointed at first because I didn't think it was sharp enough. I went to the store and bought a chicken to test it out with. This little knife is great for breaking down whole birds! It cuts through chicken like butter and makes the job of separating joints easier than I have experienced with any other knife. Please note that this knife is not meant to cut through hard bone. If you have ducks or chickens with heads and feet on them, you should use a cleaver to chop the necks and backs.

The knife blade is about 4½ inches long and has a sharp, pointed tip. Buying whole chickens and breaking them down yourself can save money. I use this knife not only for my own meals, but also for my dogs who are on a raw diet. The left over carcass and wing tips can be used for stock. This is just a great little knife, and I would recommend it for anyone who breaks down chickens, cornish hens, capons, or duck on a regular basis.

A great knife in the classic Shun tradition.
Having never used a Honesuki boning knife before I found the triangular shape of the blade a little odd at first. But after cutting up 10 chickens the other day, I have been convinced. The sharp point makes it easy to separate the flesh from the bone, the wider base easer to cut through the tougher spots.
