Maruyoshi HD Honesuki

Around my birthday last month one of these showed up:





I got to use it tonight for the first time on some chicken wings. The wings parted like butter. It took almost no pressure to slice though joints and break the wings down to three pieces.

Oh my. I might have to go buy more wings now (and they are on sale) just to do more cutting.

Sweet! I wonder if that one made a detour through Wisconsin on the way from Japan? Definitely prettier than my Tojiro honesuki!

See, I just don't think I could use a knife like that. I'd be so distracted by how pretty and shiny the blade is that I'd probably take my thumb off.

Nice knife.
I use kitchen shears on wings. I use my honesuki when I'm trimming meat away from bones. They're pretty sturdy knives for sure.

When you watch it go through the chicken wing the first time you won't be distracted. Oh no, you pay real close attention. Yikes...

That is so beautiful. I lust after the Maruyoshi HD Petty. It is going on my Christmas list.

I think the Honesuki is a sturdy knife mainly intended for disjointing while the petty is more delicate and generally less expensive?
