The garasuki is a large poultry boning knife similar to the honesuki. It originated in specialty chicken restaurants and it is commonly used to break down whole poultry. Due to its thickness and weight, it can be used for other jobs that require heavy knife work and a short blade.
General knife care tips and warnings
Never wash knives in the dishwasher
This is not stain resistant. It will rust and discolor after cutting acidic ingredients or if one leaves it wet.
Improper care will result in chipping.
Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting. Korin recommends wiping carbon knives with tsubaki oil to keep moisture off the knife.
Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
Please be cautious when inspecting carbon knives with wet hands after purchase. We ask customers to inspect all knives prior to using, and will not accept returns on damaged goods. In the event you receive a rusted knife, please call customer service within 48 hours, and we will be happy to assist you.
