What kind of knife is this?

The Honesuki is a Japanese style butchery knife used for breaking down and deboning poultry and lager cuts of meat. The honesuki Kaku in functionality leans more towards (but not only!) poultry filleting while the Maru version works better with other meats and lacks a bit of efficiency for poultry, mainly due to the lack of heel which on the Kaku is used to cut trough cartilage. Please pay close attention to the hand orientation of each individual knife as the Honesuki ofter has an asymmetric geometry.
