An American made Hankotsu, this is our interpretation of the Japanese butcher knife, which is excellent for whole animal butchery, especially deboning and trimming. This blade's initial beveling is 90/10 for the purpose of cutting protein away from the bone with more accuracy. We’ve re-designed the handle, emphasizing the hook at the bottom for better control and a more secure grip. It is uniquely designed to be gripped in 2 ways, allowing for an additional top handed grip for cuts requiring more of a pulling and stabbing action. The clean and sleek profile of this knife makes it feel like an extension of your arm.
Buckeye burl varies in color and grain structure and may vary from the displayed photo, as each piece of wood is unique.
