The hankotsu is a Japanese butchery and boning knife similar to a honesuki and is designed for breaking down and deboning meat and trimming and is a little more flexible than the honesuki.
Please note that while the knife can be used by left and right handers, it is initially ground 90/10 in favour of right handed use. This knife is made of a SKD12 monosteel and so is slightly reactive steel.

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
