For Left-Handed Customer

  • Honesuki knives must be specially ordered from Japan, and may take up to 6 weeks for arrival. Please contact our customer service team for further details.
Made from the wood/roots that have been dead for 50-100 years in the south western deserts of America and Mexico. While dead the wood/root have carbonized and hardened hence giving it the term ironwood.

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.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.
  • 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.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.
