Honesuki:

Honesukis are boning knives specifically designed for parting out poultry. These knives are stiff and robust with pointed tips and a triangular profile. Honesukis are often single bevel knives so users should be aware of how to maintain knives with this type of grind. While honesukis are very robust knives they are intended to cut through the joints of a bird, not cleave through the bone. To split a bird consider either a heavier cleaver or a western deba.

 

Care Instructions

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food.
  • Never twist or cleave the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.

Tojiro Color Series – Honesuki 150mm
Tojiro Color Series – Honesuki 150mm

Tojiro is one of the few manufactures in Japan that performs all of its manufacturing processes in-house. They choose this path of integrated in-house production, from the careful selection of materials to after sale service. The reason why they are able to deliver high quality lies in their commitment to being directly involved in every aspect of making their knives.

As knives are tools that people directly take into their hands to use, Tojiro values the skills of producers, which are the foundation of manufacturing, and keep a close eye on all processes until each craftsman at TOJIRO is completely satisfied.

Tojiro is exclusively distributed in South Africa by Kitchen Samurai.

 

The Tojiro Color series is made from Molybdenum Vanadium steel. It is a  low chromium stainless steel that has proven, over time, to be a very good compromise between toughness, strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion.

It has added Vanadium to give the steel more hardness. This steel is very easy to sharpen but it will dull relatively quickly compared to high-carbon steel.
