This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
knife with a very strong structure. Its handle is very ergonomic, but its edge is not very resistant. Excellent value for money, a knife suitable for a heavy workload that will have to be sharpened repeatedly if you want a good cut.
This blade was balanced, sharper than I expected (Probably the sharpest out of the box knife I’ve ever purchased), and performs it’s intended use of poultry work with absolute ease, as well as other tasks. My wife’s teasing about me buying a specialized chicken knife abruptly ended the first time she used this one! Outstanding quality and value for the price.
I purchased this Fujiwara Kanefusa FKM No.4 Honesuki as a companion to my Fujiwara Kanefusa FKM Gyuto. It was a great addition. The knife arrived fast and was extremely sharp out of the box. The knife construction is strong and sturdy. It is also unexpectedly heavy and this helps to work with poultry and fishes quite a lot. The price is quite fair too. Completely satisfied with this knife.
Very sharp, has a good weight to it despite small size.
I am left handed, and quality left handed knives are hard to find. I am so delighted with the left handed Honesuki and saya I bought, that I will be looking to replace some of my older right hand knives. Also, the JCK company and staff were extremely helpful and a pleasure the do business with.
