A Honesuki Knife is a Japanese specialty knife used for deboning poultry. It's extremely sharp tip and exaggerated triangle shape make it perfect for removing bones in all types of poultry. The Shun Dual Core 4.5-inch Honesuki Knife is perfectly designed to get in tight spaces and get the job done! Winner of the Blade Show 2014 Kitchen Knife of the Year, the Shun Dual Core series of knives creates for the first time, knives made of true layered and fold-forged Damascus from two premium quality stainless steels. Each knife features 71 alternating micro layers of VG10 and VG2 high-carbon, high-chromium stainless steels. The layers are welded together and fold-forged to give a finer grain to the steel and to create a beautiful blade pattern. This dual core construction features both steels going all the way to the edge of the light, thin blade. Each knife boasts a razor-sharp 16 degree angle, for the ultimate knife experience. Although thin and light, the blade is very strong, and is Shun's sharpest blade edge yet! During normal use, the two steels on the edge wear at different rates, creating micro serrations along the edge so the extremely sharp edge feels sharper, longer. The knives are made with a traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handle in ebony Pakkawood. Pakkawood is made of resin-impregnated hardwood, and is NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens. There are many styles of Dual Core to choose from, and Shun will have what you need, whatever the job! Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing. Hand washing recommended.

It is a perfect size for a lot of prep work.
I came as sharp as expected and it is beautiful.
The case fits well, you do have to be careful with the little plug; don't push hard on it or you may crack the opening.
If you want a great knife and are willing and able to spend the money this is one to get.
This is the sharpest knife I have ever held and used. Everything I have sliced has felt like I was cutting warm butter. I have used it to trim up a pork butt, spareribs and even trim down skin on beef feet for my dogs (skin and tendons). Nothing has given this knife a challenge.
Spend the extra money. This knife will not disappoint. It is built to last.
