The Sabaki/Honesuki is a poultry boning knife designed to fillet poultry and meat from bones. This knife is heavy duty but not meant to cut through bones. Our Yoshihiro Hayate Inox Aus-8 Sabaki Japanese Chefs Knife features a traditional Japanese convex grind (Hamaguri-ba). This is the same grind that was utilized in Japanese sword making and it excels in sharpness, durability and ease of sharpening. Forged from a single piece of high carbon Aus-8 stainless steel, this knife is complemented by an integrated hollow stainless steel handle that is molded for comfort and ribbed for safe grip. It is welded directly onto the blade to make for a durable, long lasting knife that is also easy to clean and sanitary.
