Our innovative KAGAYAKI CarboNext product range uses next generation carbon tool steel that we call “CarboNext”. Our CarboNext blades allow you to enjoy all the usual advantages of traditional high carbon steels (i.e. Excellent edge sharpness, excellent edge retention and ease of sharpening), but they offer the additional benefit of improved rust resistance.
The blade is made of solid CarboNext special high carbon tool steel that is hardened to HRc. 59-61. The knife features superb fit and finish, full tang construction, and comfortable black pakkawood handles. Its thin blade has a slow gradual taper and is finely ground, which results in excellent cutting performance and blade balance.
Because this knife offers greater rust resistance and ease of maintenance than regular high carbon steel knives, we particularly recommend CarboNext Knife to first-time users of carbon steel knives. Professionals and serious amateurs will love their superb blade geometry, cutting performance and quality construction.
Honesuki knives were 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.

Information About The Care & Maintenance of CarboNext Knives
While our CarboNext knives have better rust resistance than other plain carbon steel knives, they will discolor and rust if not cared for properly. To keep your knife in good condition, please do not leave it in wet or salty conditions for a long time. After hand washing the knife, we recommend that you carefully rinse the knife with plain warm water and dry it with a clean cloth. It is important to make sure that there is no water left between the blade tang and the handle, or bolster, because this can lead to corrosion.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
I ordered this knife with ES (extra sharpness) but it was out of stock... and I'm very glad it was! The classic version is still very sharp for cutting veggies, and all kind of stuff AND boning. I think the ES version might be to brittle for real boning tasks. Anyway, I can always change my mind and put on a steeper edge by myself but I won't. Fit and finish are excellent. Very good value for money! Thanks again for a very good advice Koki!
I hunt ducks and process hundreds every season. This is by far the most agile, accurate, stay-sharp and every to sharpen knife I’ve used. My hunting buddies who have them agree…
What a great knife! I ordered it with the ES (Extra Sharpening) option. I’ve been sharpening knives for over 50 years and consider myself a pretty good sharpener. It would take me long time to get a knife as sharp as this one came OOTB if I could at all. Koki and JCK are always a joy!
I’m sorta in love with this honesuki. Fit and finish is top notch and I can break down chickens with ease.
Quite as i expect as usual when i buy knives at JCK.
