Sakai Kikumori ‘Nihonkou’ 150mm Honesuki kaku. Carbon tool steel with riveted pakka wood handle. HRC 63. 265mm overall, height at heel 37mm, 164 grams.

Made right-handed, honesuki kaku are primarily designed for breaking down poultry. This Japanese boning knife has a thick, triangular, self-guarded blade.  These type of honesuki are great for sliding through joints and going through smaller bones.

 

Sakai Kikumori's Nihonkou line are reasonably priced factory made carbon steel knives with a carbon content of .95%, hardened to approx 63 HRC. Nihonkou knives’ thin mono-steel blades are super easy to sharpen and get a nice edge that holds well.  They are ideal for the professional or home cook who is looking for a great workhorse with easy sharpen-ability.

This is a highly reactive carbon steel.  It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the knife is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use.  It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.

Sakai Kikumori was started in 1926 and draws on Sakai's 600 year history as the major center of traditional Japanese cutlery manufacturing. They work with a large variety of Sakai's best smiths, sharpeners and small factories to offer a wide variety of knives ranging from traditional materials and styles to more modern, western influenced styles and materials.
