12cm (4½’’) Honesuki [Japanese Boning Knife]
YOU’LL LOVE THIS JAPANESE BONING KNIFE
Got poultry? This is your knife. The Shun Classic Honesuki is a Japanese boning knife. The 4½ -inch blade is perfect for maneuvering around bones and between joints. Once you try it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the complete control you gain as you process your poultry and other proteins. Its razor-sharp blade makes removing breasts from bone easy and it cuts joint cartilage almost like butter. Scoring and trimming is a breeze, too—and you can use the blade’s spine for scraping. Once you’ve used this Japanese boning knife, you may never go back to a European style again.

Stainless steel end caps complete the design for added beauty and durability. Every Shun Classic knife is an outstanding example of form fulfilling function. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and contemporary cutting-edge designs, so you will always find the right knife for the task.
AT THE PEAK OF PERFECTION
In Japan, “shun” (pronounced shoon) is the word used to describe local, seasonal food at the very peak of its flavor and freshness. Shun is a time—the exact moment—when a fruit has reached its perfect ripeness, when a vegetable is at its very best, when meat is at its most flavorful. Home cooks and professional chefs alike celebrate shun in their kitchens, eagerly awaiting each season’s bounty and serving every ingredient in its proper time. Kai named their fine cutlery Shun to honor this tradition of seasonal, mindful eating and as a mark of their dedication to making kitchen cutlery that is always at the peak of its perfection, too.
So now you know; just say, “Shoon” (rhymes with “moon”) for kitchen cutlery that’s designed to help keep your freshest ingredients at their very best.
