KN34-2 Honesuki Western

KN34-2 Honesuki Western (Full Tang)


This is a smaller kitchen knife that has a fairly stiff spine that is useful for boning and general slicing. The bevel is ground on the right side only which makes it a little unusual to operate, but once one gets used to the asymmetry it become very handy.


The blade is shaped and ground from AEB-L 3/32" which is supposed to be 0.09375" but usually a little thicker and measures closer to 0.11" when I check it with the caliper. The handle is made from Inkline Spalted Maple from Woodstabilizer.com and the bolsters are 316 stainless with 316L pins. The pattern for the KN34 is here.
