Description

The triangular blade of this honesuki offers incredible control—precisely maneuver this deft knife around a shoulder joint while sectioning poultry or easily french a rack of lamb, and you’ll never go back to a western-style boning knife. Melding the sharpness of carbon steel with stainless steel’s corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance, Shun Blue represents a leap forward in knife technology. The blade features a core of blue steel—a fine-grained carbon steel known for taking a retaining an extremely sharp edge—sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, resulting in a blazingly sharp knife that is still easy to maintain.

I choose this because it was created in a joint effort by Chef Chris Consentino and Japanese knife maker Shun. They are perfectly weighted and razor sharp.
