Ittetsu knives are forged by a group of blacksmiths working out of Sanjo City, Japan. They produce knives following master bladesmith, Tadafusa’s OEM designs. The Nashiji (pear skin) finish is a great introduction to Japanese knives. The Blue # 2 High-Carbon steel is clad between two pieces of stainless steel forming a Sanmai blade construction. This offers the benefits of High-Carbon steel & the ease of stainless. A Kaku-Honesuki is traditionally a Japanese poultry boning knife. Although, many chefs today use it for all boning purposes, such as Frenching a rack or lamb. This knife has a profile which is thicker at the spine and wide at the heel, then contours to a narrow tip. This allows clean separation at joints and cartilage. It also works very well for cutting smaller fish like Aji, Kodai, and Kohada.
