Glestain Knife blades need to be special ordered to Japan and the cost is an additional 30% of the price of the right-handed knife. Please allow us to take 4 to 6 weeks.
Glestain knives are immediately recognizable by their unique design. "Dimples" in the blade's surface reduce surface tension between the blade and the food being cut, allowing faster, easier, and more efficient cutting. The blade is constructed of Glestain's original Acuto steel, which undergoes a sub-zero manufacturing process that ensures a very hard (HRC 58-59) and durable edge. Each Glestain knife comes with a balanced, water resistant hardwood handle fastened with stainless-steel rivets.
The honesuki is a poultry boning knife used to separate the meat from the bones. It is lighter and thinner than the garasuki and can be used in place of a Western boning knife.
