This Kikuichi Swedish Gold series is one of our heaviest western knives and is preferred by many chefs who want the quality of a Japanese blade with the weight and design of a European knife. The blade is made from a Swedish Gold Stainless core sandwiched between SUS410 stainless which protects and adds corrosion resistance creating a hefty blade that can withstand the heavy work of a professional kitchen while maintaining a sharp edge for fast cutting. The blade steel contains 15% Chromium, 1.5% Cobalt, and 1% Molybdenum. Ultimately, this alloy gives the knife the ability to withstand daily use and still hold a razor sharp edge. A Honesuki is traditionally a Japanese poultry boning knife. Today, chefs also use a Honesuki for all boning tasks such as Frenching a rack of 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. This knife also works very well for cutting smaller fish like Aji, Kodai, and Kohada.
