Description: Pro-S is a perfect knife for either the home or professional chef. It provides a superior, keen edge that just won't quit.
Honesuki are Japanese boning knives. This knife is great for boning poultry, fish, and red meats but also amazing as a general purpose slicing knife! The blade is ground with a primary bevel on the right side and flat on the left. This makes it easy to cut along a bone without biting into the surface. Many chefs have told us that when they moved from a European style boning knife to a honesuki, the resulting meat was not only cut cleaner, but the process was nearly double as fast. The gently curved edge is combined with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board, making this a perfect knife for thin slicing. The blade grind makes this knife ideal for right-handed users.
Pro-S is made by Seki-Kanetsugu Hamono, founded by the legendary Seki swordsmith (Kanetsugu) from the Teiwa period (1345-1349). The ancient techniques of forging samurai swords have been passed down from generation to generation for over 660 years.
The Pro-S blade is a high carbon, high molybdenum, high vanadium stainless steel. It is heat treated to Hrc 57 and sub-zero quenched for longer edge holding and resistance to chipping and brittleness. The blade is differentially ground to help food release from the side of the knife while slicing.
The sanitary hollow 18-8 grade stainless steel handle is nicely rounded. It is slightly larger than many Japanese knives and is inspired by the traditional Japanese katana wrap. This pattern provides a sure, comfortable, non-slip grip. Following in the best tradition of knife making, a forge welded steel ferrule ensures that food particles cannot become lodged between the tang and the handle. The handle was developed by Mitsuyasu Kawamura (president of Kanetsugu Hamono). His research and study resulted in these light, nimble and perfectly balanced knives.
