Blade Type

The Honesuki knife, a traditional Japanese boning knife, is uniquely crafted for poultry butchery. Its triangular, sturdy blade is adept at maneuvering around bones, joints, and tendons, offering precise control. With a pointed tip for detailed work, the Honesuki is indispensable for chefs specializing in meat preparation.

Steel Type

Japanese Blue Steel #2, or "Aogami" #2, is a revered high-carbon steel alloyed with low amounts of chromium and tungsten. It strikes an excellent balance between durability, edge retention, and ease of sharpening. Slightly more ductile than Blue #1, it's widely used in crafting traditional Japanese knives, beloved by chefs for its resilience and sharpness, albeit is slightly softer than Blue 1.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Introducing

Kisuke

Embracing a rapid rise in popularity for his unique designs and committment to striving for perfection, Shunsuke Manaka is the man behind Kisuke knives. From the sketchbook to the kitchen, he is the sole craftsman behind the entire knifemaking process. Shunsuke engineers these knives using a process known as Warikomi, whereby a glowing hot piece of steel is split, and the core steel is wedged in and forged together. The split steel becomes the outer layers, and the core steel is exposed at the edge. This process produces a stronger, tougher more durable blade.
