The Ittetsu SLD Hammered series is a workhorse and makes for a great daily driver. With a core of Powdered SLD semi-stainless steel & SUS420 stainless cladding, they offer easy maintenece and great edge retention with an HRC of 62 to 63. They are lightweight and have a Tsuchime hammered finish. This allows the blades to pass through food product efficiently and with ease. 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. 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.
NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
