Forged by a group of blacksmiths working out of Sanjo City, this knife is a great introduction to Japanese knives, with a handle in between the Japanese wa-handle and the western yo-handle. The stainless steel cladding helps prevent rust and the core makes it an extremely sharp blade.

The garasuki is a larger version of the honesuki, a poultry boning knife. This makes this knife ideal for breaking down larger poultry, like turkey, duck, etc. It has an agile tip to get around bones and a heavy heel to break through the cartilage (never bone!).

  • After use, wash with warm water and a non-abrasive cloth or sponge and dish soap. Dry immediately and thoroughly to prevent rust from forming.
  • When cutting acidic ingredients (eg. rhubarb, onions, tomatoes), wipe or wash immediately after use.
  • Because this knife is made of carbon steel, it will eventually develop a patina, or oxidation, that will eventually help with rust prevention. Be aware that this looks like discolouration.
  • Never put this knife in the dishwasher! The high temperature will ruin the wood handle and may dull the blade!
  • Avoid hard ingredients like nuts, bones, and frozen foods. They may chip the edge.
