The blade on the Shun Dual Core 4-1/2 inch Honesuki Knife is specifically designed for boning chicken and other types of poultry. It is small and flexible so you can cut around bones and in between joints to get the maximum amount of meat. You can also use the Shun Honesuki knife to trip and score.

The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. Seventy-one alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge.

Features of the Shun Dual Core:
  • Made with two types of top quality stainless steel. Each wear at different rates, prolonging knife sharpness.
  • 71 alternating layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steel, are welded and fold-forged, resulting in a strong, durable blade.
  • Hand-sharpened 16-degree double-bevel blade.
  • Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag for effortless cutting.
  • Beautiful and distinctive pattern on all Dual core knife blades.
  • Long lasting PakkaWood handle, with traditional octagonal shape, is crafted from resin and white birch, the hardest wood currently available.

    • 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 71 extremely durable layers of stainless steel.
    • Lifetime limited warranty from Shun with normal use and proper care.
    • Hand crafted 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.
