Don't let the smaller size of the Shun Blue Steel 4.5" Honesuki fool you. This nimble butchery specialist was developed just for poultry, and it will help you break down chicken, duck, cornish hens and game birds with a speed and precision that other boning knives simply can't match. This unique wedge-shaped blade has an extremely hard (61° Rockwell), sharp and flat edge of blue carbon steel. It takes an extremely keen edge that easily cuts though small bones and joints, and a very fine tip that leaves no usable meat behind. Plus, carbon steel is among the easiest materials to resharpen. Of course Shun owners don't really have to worry about resharpening, because all Shun knives include free lifetime sharpening. Please note that the exposed carbon steel at the edge will develop a desirable "blue steel" patina with use, and simple care will be required to prevent rusting near the edge. The majority of the blade is permanently protected by beautifully polished stainless steel. Every Shun Blue Steel Knife includes its own custom-fit saya (sheath) and is backed by the manufacturer's lifetime warranty. Hand wash only. Shun Blue Steel Knives are handmade in Seki, Japan
