We often have received the inquiry and request for Wa Handle Version of Honesuki/Boning Knife. The light weight balance and high cutting performance and practical and high quality Wa Honesuki. We wanted to make the simple, but functional Wa Honesuki for our customers with Kagayaki Craftsman team.
The new KAGAYAKI VG-10 knives have a graceful balance. They feature an attractive semi-mirror-polished solid VG-10 blade (HRc. 60- 61).
VG-10 is high performance stainless cutlery steel that is famous for its combination of very good edge sharpness, edge retention, and high corrosion resistance.
Kagayaki VG-10 Wa Honesuki comes with comfortable grip of Octagonal Magnolia Wood Handle with Water Buffalo Horn Ferrules. For safekeeping, this knife comes with a matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) with a black pakkawood Saya pin.
Expert Craftsmanship and true Passion are necessary to create a beautifully polished, three-dimensional Honesuki blade, with a perfectly polished blade tip, spine and Machi.
Maintaining the same of high quality finishing and manufacturing standards established by our existing Kagayaki VG-10 line, creating a nice visual accent.
Honesuki knife is originally intended to be a specialist knife for de-boning and breaking down poultry, but many people have found this knife is also capable of filleting fish or red meat and can perform many of the tasks that Western boning knives are used for.
This is the Japanese Traditional Wa Style Wa-Boning Knife, now available for Kagayaki brand selections.
