The Shun Blue Steel 4.5 inch Honesuki knife is a traditional Japanese boning knife. It is ideal for chicken because the sharpness of its carbon steel blade easily cuts through this less dense meat without tearing or shredding it.

Carbon steel, or blue steel,blades can be time-consuming to maintain, however, Blue Steel knives from Shun are easy to maintain because the carbon steel is completely covered by 2 layers of rust-resistant stainless steel. Caring for Shun Blue as you would any other high quality Shun knife.
The Blue Steel Honesuki knife from Shun is made in Japan of Japanese carbon steel. As with all Shun knives, Blue Steel has a lifetime warranty and free lifetime sharpening.

    • MetroKitchen.com recommends washing your knives by hand and immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
    • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts, as they may stain the surface of your knives.
    • For longer lasting knives, cut on a wooden cutting board. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
    • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after using your knives.
    • It's best to store your Shun knife so the edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
    • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
    • Shun knives don't need frequent sharpening because they are made from 32 extremely durable layers of stainless steel.
    • Lifetime limited warranty from Shun with normal use and proper care.
    • Made in Japan
    • Free lifetime sharpening from Shun. Pay only for shipping; $5 for the first knife, $2 for each additional knife. Please print and complete this form and ship to Shun with the knives you'd like to have sharpened.
