Description: The Hankotsu, which developed in the Kansai region of Japan (Osaka, Kyoto and their vicinities), is an all-purpose boning knife ideal for French-style hanging butchery and is used for separating meat from bones. It is a strong and sturdy knife, used to cut meat away from the bone, but not a cleaver for cutting through bones. It is ideal for de-boning beef and pork whereas the honesuki is best for poultry and seafood. This Hankotsu is made for LEFT HANDED use.
Misono is one of the most well-established knife producers of Western-style Japanese knives. Made in Seki, Japan, Misono knives incorporate modern technology with traditional craftsmanship. The result is one of the best professional-use knives to be found anywhere.
Misono's Swedish Carbon Steel line is hand forged and hand sharpened to maintain a long-lasting, super-keen edge. Because these knives are forged from carbon steel, they must be dried and oiled after use to prevent rust and oxidation. We recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade. The blade is tempered to Rc60 and will hold its edge considerably longer than most stainless and carbon steel Western-made knives.
The Pakkawood handles are made by compressing thin slices of wood which have been pressure treated with resin. This process results in a handle that is impervious to water and will hold up well to the demanding environment of both home and commercial kitchens. For strength, the handles are riveted to the full length tang. Each blade comes razor sharp. These knives are attractive, well balanced, and easy to sharpen. This knife is designed for LEFT-handed use.
