Produced in Niigata Japan by Honma Kagaku, Glestain knives are recognizable with their unique design featuring a double row of Kullenschliff. These scalloped dimples in the blade's surface reduces surface tension between the blade and food product which allows for faster, easier, & more efficient cutting. Glestain's blade-smiths manufacture the K Series from their original Acuto steel (440A). They use a sub-zero manufacturing process to bring the blades to an HRC of 59. A Garasuki is a Japanese poultry boning knife. Larger in size than a Honesuki, it has thick blade and narrowed tip. Not only does this knife great for poultry, it excels at cutting through lobster shells and butchering small fish.
