Honesuki are slightly thicker Japanese knives designed to process poultry. The thicker blade places more meat behind the edge to allow you to work around bones and joints, whilst the k-tip leaves a thinner edge for the finer, more detailed work.

 

  Gyutos are the workhorse of a kitchen and are designed to handle most kitchen tasks. This knife is a 205mm low layer damascus knife has a full flat grind with a particularly thin tip making it suited to some fine tip work. 

The honesuki is hand forged from 1084 and 15n20 lower layer damascus and features a full flat grind. The WA handle is made out of a piece of stabilised Gidgee with a black G10 spacer.
