General Information

Named for the sacred sword carried by Japan's Samurai warriors, Calphalon Katana Series cutlery has its roots in a centuries-old tradition of superior cutlery craftsmanship. Like the awe-inspiring swords wielded by the Samurai, Calphalon Katana Series cutlery is crafted using a time-honored layering process that creates a Damascus style blade, clad with 33 stainless steel layers. This unique series of cutlery uses VG Japanese steel, which provides exceptional sharpness and ultimate edge retention. These knives also feature a patented integrated bolster design and an ergonomically designed poly-resign handle. The Honesuki is a traditional Japanese poultry boning knife. The slim blade of the knife is ideal for boning chicken breasts and thighs.

Pros: thin. light, agile, very sharp
Cons: handle may need getting used to
 i have a feeling i got this knife for a song.  found it on ebay and made this single bid and won it.  the knife is a very sharp very handy knife for small jobs, certainly better for a lot of jobs than a paring knife.  a honesuki is traditionally a small boning knife, and this knife really knows its way around a chicken, as well as deboning a pork shoulder roast.  it also excels at prepping veggies and mincing garlic.  the blade seems to be very similar to the shun classic knives, so i can assume it is a fancy stamped knife with a handle that has been welded on.  the only con i can think of is that the handle, while looking very modern and hip,
feels small, and should be better at fitting smaller hands.
